Digital Creative Workshops

Digital Creative Workshops

Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) Digital Mobile Unit in partnership with South West Arts are excited to be offering two creative digital workshops for adults in Deniliquin on Saturday 26 May 2018.

Date: Saturday 26 May

Time: one-day workshops, 10am – 3.00pm, with lunch break of 1 hour.

Venue: TAFE NSW, Deniliquin Campus

Fee: $40 per workshop

Booking: Book online

You have a choice of 2 workshops:

Workshop 1: 3D Printed Wearables workshop

Learn the basics of 3D printing and make 3D printed textile decoration suitable for wearables. From your hand-drawn images or black and white JPG graphic files create 3D printed surface patterns on textiles and 3D printed lace. The workshop includes a demonstration in 3D printing from open-source files and other sources and basic assembly techniques using hand tools. A combination of 3D printed decoration on textiles, pre-printed netting patterns, recycled 3D printed parts and textile yarns will be used to create small wearable works. Laptops will be available for use in the workshop. Bring your mobiles to the class if you have one as we will be using them.

Workshop 2: Coding, E-textiles and lighting workshop

Ever wondered how TV remotes, game controllers and smart devices work? Discover how in a hands-on electronic technologies workshop. You will gain an understanding of how non-computerised smart devices function thanks to microcontrollers such as Arduino. Using code language based on C/C++, learners will also discover how to control an Arduino featuring the MAAS ThinkerShield. You will be guided in how to write code to control the ThinkerShield’s LED lights and create custom light patterns, and once you have mastered that, the possibilities are endless! You can experiment, tinker and invent with the ThinkerShield’s many components to demonstrate gained coding knowledge. Also included is an E-textiles component. Learn how to create sewn textile pieces that light-up. MAAS laptops and electronic parts will be used in the workshop.

Space is limited, so book now!


Following the workshops, there will be a FREE Digital Meet-up information session:

Time: 3:00pm – 5:00pm

Venue: Deniliquin TAFE Fee: FREE

Ever wondered how TV remotes, game controllers and smart devices work? See demonstrations and have a try at using coding, Arduino, and the ThinkerShield, 3D printing and virtual reality headsets. Hear a short presentation from Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences staff talk about the possibilities of using this new technology for social enterprise.

This free session is open to the community and friends and family of workshop participants.
