Today’s maker focus features the innovative digital media collective Codasign.
The Codasign team includes scientists, designers, media experts, musicians, technicians and games designers, brought together by a belief that digital technologies are as creative a medium as paint and canvas. In their London Studio, they welcome both children and adults to get creative with technology by making music, creating visual art and having fun through experimentation. They specialise in using open source tools such as Processing, Arduino, Scratch and MaKey MaKey.
In the first workshop Codasign are presenting at the Mini Maker Faire, children over five can learn how to make an interactive digital puppet. They will be taught to use the innovative animation and storytelling software, Scratch and MaKey MaKey, the 21st century invention kit.
Adults can get in on the fun too in Codasign’s Capacitive Sensing Arduino workshop. You can learn how to control sounds or light with a wave of your hand with Arduino and Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint! There are limited spaces available, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
The collective will also be hosting an all day drop in robot badge making workshop!
