Learn the basics and possibilities of digital fabrication from NYC design experts! As part of Eyebeam’s Computational Fashion program, this workshop will demonstrate some of today’s most disruptive, innovative, and thought provoking technologies. Join Arthur Young-Spivey, Sabine Seymour, and Francis Bitonti to explore 3D software, scanning, and printing tools, and consider how they can be used, combined, and pushed in new directions.
Workshop participants will gain exposure to digital fabrication and its potential use within fashion, developing new ways to think about it as both a prototyping process and a creative medium. Presentations – including designer Francis Bitonti discussing his work on a fully articulated 3D printed gown – will be followed by hands-on demonstrations, where participants will be able to try out various aspects of the digital fabrication process using a selection of 3D printers, scanners, and software.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
