Makerversity Half Term Academy: Sculptural Twining

Tuesday 25th October 2016, 10:00 — 12:00

Makerversity’s residency at Farmopolis sees the jetty transformed into a mini university for kids aged 6-11 hosting an array of hands-on design and making workshops during Autumn Half Term (24th-28th October).

Makerversity creates environments for learning and making to inspire the next generation of creative and practical minds. Anyone who is in the business of making, or would like to be, is invited to be part of the community. From designers to hackers, engineers to technologists, coders to urban farmers, makers to inventors; Makerversity provides space, people and support to develop businesses and creative  practice.

Jewellery & Metalwork designers Tanvi Kant and Alice McLean will lead a workshop that will involve creating long tendril like vines with elemental rope-making techniques. These can then be stitched to make into a vessel form or using wire, create freestanding plant-like spiral forms. The final outcomes can either be made individually or collaboratively in parent/child pairs.
