Fun for all the family, why not try your hand at sculpting something flashy? Through alternating layers of insulating and conducting dough it's possible to create many interesting things.
Included in your ticket we'll be providing you with a small bag of conductive and non-conductive dough (additional bags can be purchased for £1 each) and some LEDs all of which you can take home with you after the workshop (though keep in mind the non-conductive dough is not reusable once it's come into contact with conductive dough).
We will be providing power on the day, but you'll have to find your own power supply when you get home. We find that 9V PP3 batteries work just fine.
This workshop is running as part of International Arduino Day, the entire makerspace will be open to have a look round and see other projects (including a 3D Printer) running. So why not come early or stay late and find out what Southampton Makerspace is all about? There is a repeat of this squishy circuits workshop at 3:30 running on the same day. (see event)
Children may not participate in this workshop unless accompanied and supervised by a paying adult. Each adult ticket allows one child access to the workshop (additional dough can be purchased for £1 per set). Adults accompanying children must take full responsibility for the children at all times whilst at the Makerspace. We recommend that younger children are allowed to play with the dough only and not the electronic components.
When & Where
So Make It
Southampton's Makerspace - we believe that everyone, from any background, should be able to learn new skills and make new friends. To enable this, we run a Makerspace where members can use our resources and tools to create amazing new things. Our members love to share knowledge and skills, so lack of experience is not a problem! We’re not for profit – ran by our members for our members.
