An 8-week OCN accredited course taking young people through a wide variety of digital fabrication techniques – such as 3d scanning and printing, laser engraving, and different maker activities. Participants were introduced to the museum’s Sir John Newell Jordan Collection, a unique range of ornate oriental pieces including carvings, textiles and teapots, and encouraged to reimagine the collection through these techniques.

Participants created a range of laser etched wooden pieces, 3d prints, vinyl stickers and fabricated decorative lightboxes which were showcase in the cafe area of the Museum throughout May 2019. The pieces will form a larger exhibition linked with the Sir John Newell Jordan collection in November 2019.
