‘Make:Shift:Do’ at York College

Experience new ways of making with ‘Make:Shift:Do’ at York College

York College is taking part in the Craft Council’s Make:Shift:Do event this month by hosting a New Digital Craft workshop on Saturday 24th October 2015 (10am – 4pm).  The workshop is free and open to all ages and abilities. 

The New Digital Craft workshop will feature hands on experience from established makers, using digital technologies including 3D printing, laser cutting and CAD modelling in conjunction with traditional making workshops in ceramics, Jewellery, metal work and woodwork. There will be demonstrations from Go Print3D, HPC Laser and artist Jim Bond throughout the day, as well as drawing machines available for children of all ages to have a go.

Make:Shift:Do, organised by the Crafts Council in partnership with the V&A, Institute of Making at UCL and Ultimaker, aims to allow everyone the chance to experience new technologies through a programme of workshops, events and activities taking place at thirty different venues all over the country.  Each activity will highlight a boom in new making, fuelled by accessible new design technology and the spread of social media.

There’s no need to book the York College New Digital Craft workshop on 24th October, just come along on the day.  For further information email:  epoxon@yorkcollege.ac.uk
