Are you looking for tech workshops for young people?
Maker City supports young people aged 10 – 15 to learn how to use a variety of digital making technologies such as laser cutters, 3D printers, vacuum formers, vinyl cutters and digital embroidery machines. We encourage young people to think ‘outside the box’ and make new products, whilst challenging them to creatively solve problems.
We run our introductory 10 week course at KWMC: The Factory three times a year, and we also work in a number of different schools across Bristol delivering the same 10-week course. Throughout the course, young people develop digital skills whilst also learning about social action and becoming active citizens in their community. We encourage young people to think differently about what “failing” means, and that, in practice, failing is a major part of any design process.
At the end of the 10 weeks, the young people will have a final product they’ve designed and made themselves and will graduate from the course.
We worked with 132 young people in 2018-2019 through the Maker City programme.
When: Maker City sessions run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between 4 – 6pm
Who: 10 – 14 year olds
Where: Sessions take place at different locations including KWMC: The Factory,
