Introduction to Arduino at MadFabLab

Share

Type:

City:

Description: 

Try your hand at coding with electronics!

Learn all about the Arduino (a programmable circuit board and software) and how it can be used to build imaginative projects.

This workshop will start at the beginning, introducing the Arduino and explaining why it’s such a big deal, walking you through the creation of many basic electronic projects and catapulting you into the world of making, prototyping and creative technology invention.

Over the years Arduino has been used to make all kinds of things, from tiny wearables to large-scale interactive installations. Here are a few of our favourites:

  • LEAP. A live-action game which pits players against a laser-equipped robot security system gone rogue
  • Rachael Moat (Arduino Manchester) creates prototypes which encourage children with severe communication and learning difficulties to interact with the world around them
  • Ardu-Sat, a “low-cost space research platform”
  • Analogue Synthesizer hacking, with Arduino and Moog

Versatile, beginner-friendly, and above all fun, this workshop will give you an insight into how to get started with your own excellent digital-physical projects!
The course fee covers the day’s workshop tuition, as well as the cost of an ARDX Experimentation Kit from Oomlout (worth £62!), containing an Arduino Uno (Classic) and all the wires and electronic components (LEDs, sensors, motors, buttons) you need to carry on tinkering at home!

Who is this course for?

This is an entry-level workshop, for those new to electronics prototyping, writing software, and potentially both.

Basic computer skills (opening software, editing files and so on) are required, and some programming experience (e.g. Javascript or Python) would be useful but not essential.

Equipment you’ll need

You will need a laptop running a recent version of an Arduino-compatible operating system such as Windows, Linux or Mac OS X. Make sure it’s got a working USB port to connect and program the Arduino.

Lunch isn't provided on this course, but you're welcome to bring a packed lunch with you. Or try out one of the tasty and varied eateries on our doorstep.

What will you learn?

  • How to connect and configure an Arduino Uno, and upload programs to it
  • How to use a breadboard to prototype circuits, and interact with components through software
  • What different kinds of components exist and how to use them
  • How to communicate between an Arduino and your computer
  • How to expand your Arduino, and where to find devices, support, and inspiration for new projects

Creative Knitting Workshop

An event hosted by talented textile artist Rosina Godwin, one of the artists who exhibited last years Platform for Emerging Arts 16 exhibition

This workshop will provide you with the perfect opportunity to get a basic understanding of the techniques and gain skills that can be translated into a unique and highly creative skill.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

The workshop explores knitting as a method of making both 2D and 3D artworks. The session focuses on combining yarns with found objects and using unconventional materials (wire, garden twine, fabric, etc ) to create mood, character, and narrative.

1) Introductions

- Everyone discusses what knitting/ textiles and art experience they have.

2) Knitting

- Basic knitting technique/ circular knitting (joined needles/ 3+4 needles).

- Narrative through materials ( choice of yarns, combining more than one yarn and materials, perhaps recycling any old of sentimental objects). Incorporating fabric strips, wire & garden twine & basic construction.

3) Discussions

- Rosina will discuss techniques including: felting knitted items, painting knitting with e.g latex and threading objects onto the yarn e.g buttons.

- This section is designed to elaborate on how knitted objects can be translated into sculptural forms and to advance your own ideas on the results that can be achieved by creative knitting.

WHAT ATTENDEES SHOULD BRING:

All experiences welcome. We will supply basic materials, but if you have them please bring yarns, knitting needles, crochet hooks, sewing needles, thread, and items such as buttons, sequins, beads, etc (i.e. anything which can be threaded through a yarn).

☆Free-style Crochet

☆Embracing Embroidery
