New Makery Timetable!

The programme is really starting to come together at the 2 Makery sites, with a combination of open sessions and tutor-led sessions on a range of technical skills and equipment use. 

But first: a recap!

The Makery is a flexible digital space which has been equipped with high specification equipment. The Makery was created for technical enthusiasts and amateurs alike to learn and develop new skills and experiment with creative digital concepts in a collaborative style using: Apple iMacs running Sketch Up Pro and Adobe Creative Cloud, Apple iPads, Lego EV3 Robotics, Raspberry Pi and Crumble kits for explore coding, electronics and the world of micro computers, 3D printing, and more! See the selection of sessions across the two sites below:
