South West Arts will be holding two workshops with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS) Digital Mobile Unit on Saturday, May 28.
Attendees will have a choice of one of the two workshops available on the day.
One of the workshops is based around coding, E-textiles and lighting where you will gain an understanding of how non-computerised smart devices function thanks to microcontrollers. This is a hands-on electronic technologies workshop where you will also learn how to create sewn textile pieces that light up.
The second workshop teaches you the basics of 3D printing and making 3D printed textile decoration suitable for wearables. From hand-drawn images or black and white ‘jpg’ graphic files you can create 3D printed surface patterns on textiles and 3D printed lace.
The one day workshops will run from 10am to 3pm with an hour lunch break.
There will also be a free digital meet-up information session at the same venue, from 3pm to 5pm.
Open to the community and friends and family of workshop participants, you can find out how TV remotes, game controllers and smart devices work using hands-on demonstrations where you can get involved.
South West Arts project manager Spencer McGill said if you’re interested in textile art, coding or just 3D printing in general, these fun workshops are for you.
‘‘We’re very excited to have the Digital Mobile Unit from the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences coming to Deniliquin.
‘‘This is a wonderful opportunity not to be missed.
‘‘It’s a fantastic initiative and South West Arts are proud to partner with MAAS to bring this to the region,’’ he said.
The workshops will be held at TAFE NSW Deniliquin campus.
There are only 15 spots per workshop. Cost is $40 per person.
