Event description

Description

We're interested in helping artists learn to use technology to expand their definition of art and in helping tech peeps learn to be more artistic and creative! Wherever you are on that spectrum, we invite you to join us for our Spring intensive workshops!

Introducing "Make-Your-Own vibrator workshop” with Touchy-Feely Tech, part of a series of mini-School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe courses we've put together to help get you started!

No experience necessary, come as you are.

Now let's begin!

___________________________

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The workshop, held in english, is designed to introduce you to the basics of electronics, coding and customizable pleasure.

During this workshop you will build your own functioning vibrator, while getting hands-on with the basics of electronics in the process. You will explore how to make simple changes to the internal and external parts to create a customised and safe-to-use end result. Finally, you will learn to hack your vibrator with an Arduino microcontroller, learning how hardware and software can be brought together to enhance the purpose and functionality of our intimate electronic possessions.

The workshop will be led by Alice Stewart and Dani Clode who form Touchy-Feely Tech, a creative technology studio working at the intersection of electronic hardware, art and education.
