On Friday 28th we were asked to participate in HACK . MAKE . CREATE as part of V&A Lates, we were honoured to be part of such an amazing line up of makers and showcase some of the Makerversity talent we house. Among the line up were :
Happenstance – Happenstance Workshop is a design company, focusing on quality eco-effective products for the home. They take old milk bottles and plastic waste, grind it down and re-mould it into desirable and eco-friendly products that can be re-melted time and time again to create new products.
RE~MASTER – Recent RCA graduate Sabina Weiss showcased her final project RE~MASTER – a interactive and intuitive way to design digital embroidery. Using her innovative scanner, the user is able to draw their design using pen and paper and have it transformed into a digital vector drawing and turned into a digital embroidery print. Eliminating the need for learning complicated software and creating a more seamless digital experience.
The non-stop fountain of energy that is Makerversity founder Tom Tobia also gave an inspirational talk about desktop manufacturing; what it is, why it’s a thing, and what it means for the future of manufacturing.
You can catch Happenstance Workshops in our latest Fantastic Plastics series – and learn how to mould and take home your own bowl!
