The Hartlebury Hackathon will take place on Saturday 28th October, bringing together families with makers, technologists, and heritage professionals to explore the use of 3D technology to reinterpret historic objects.
Historic buildings and objects have the potential to inspire in us a better understanding of ourselves and others, but their special nature can create barriers to access which can be difficult to overcome. They can't always be touched or they have hidden pasts that cry out for creative retelling. We hope that with the help of experienced makers and creative young people, we can combine technology with history to investigate how exploring the past can have a positive impact on our lives today.
Participants will utilise their creativity and making skills to explore the technologies of vacuum forming and 3D modelling and printing.
Make:Shift:Do is a nationwide programme of craft and innovation workshops taking place on 27 and 28 October 2017
