The event was aimed at creative and curious adults with an interest in exploring digital projects and learning more about supportive networks in the city. A chance to try out a range of digital challenges, get hands-on with new technologies and consider more ideas to inspire a new project at home.
Activities included getting started with Raspberry Pi, discovering the Wonders of Wearables, hands-on mischief with capacitive touch and solving real world problems by adding smart sensors and cameras. Each project also had an element of fun attached with a creative twist.
Using creative means to visualise environmental data led us to tinkering opportunities with this 'digital peonies' project, a take from another activity focused on improving air quality.
Always a pleasure to share the Bare Conductive story and inspire more projects through capacitive touch. We've got a Harry Potter feeling about a next collaboration in the city!
So what's next for The Art of Tinkering in Leeds?
Well feedback from the event points towards a demand for a programme of digital making activities for adults. Watch this space : )
'Totally loved it - fab for a total beginner'
Really interesting to try all the different equipment!
'I'd love some workshops with targeted stuff to make or build'
