Artschool I/O Summer School 2015 :)


Following last year's popular programme, this summer we will be
running another artschool I/O summer school, harnessing the long balmy
days to sit indoors making things and tinkering with computers and
electronics!

Is there something you would like to learn?
Is there something you can offer to teach?

Last year we had workshops on arduino, processing, e-textiles, pure
data, grasshopper, quick prototyping techniques, drawing machines.
This year we'll definitely have more of the same, plus
wireless-enabled arduino, and whatever else you like - maybe sewing,
open frameworks, beer making, projection mapping, laser cutting.
Anything you'd like to propose will be considered!

Workshops can be half a day or a day long and open to any GSA staff
and students to attend. The whole programme will run from the week
commencing 20th July until week ending September 11th, most likely on
Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you would like a particular date, do let us
know. Everyone who leads workshop will be compensated accordingly, and
materials provided.

Short workshops on making interactive prototypes using electronics, coding and other easy tech.
Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer.
Workshops are open to all Design School staff, postgraduate students and members of Artschool I/O, and will take place on campus.
