Manchester, United Kingdom
Tickets £5 from Eventbrite
Not only will we provide materials and instructions to make a hand-sewn cuddly animal toy – we’ll be adding a geeky twist, using LEDs and conductive thread to make simple switched circuits, and make it light up!
You’ll need some hand-sewing skills, but our volunteers will be on hand to advise and guide you and we’ll provide everything else you need. You can keep everything you make and take it home with you.
This workshop is open to everyone, but we recommend a minimum age of around 10 years, as there’ll be needles and the project might be quite difficult for smaller children.
It’s suitable for complete beginners, although more advanced stitchers might find they can create something more adventurous in the time given.
We’ll provide all the materials, as well as instructions, tea, coffee and squash, plus some cakes and biscuits (although if you feel like baking some, you’re welcome to contribute).
This workshop will be slightly different to our previous event at MOSI in April, but if you attended that it will mean you have a bit of advance knowledge and find this project easier – if you’d like to come again and bring friends, you’ll be very welcome!
We also hope to run follow-on workshops covering more advanced electronics, so please keep an eye on this website and our Twitter feed for updates.
If you’re accompanying someone to the workshop but don’t want to make anything, you don’t need to book a ticket. As always, boy geeks are welcome, especially if they come along with a girl.
