This event aims to be a fun and relaxed crafting activity, with everyday materials and tools. This activity is part of a larger research project (at the Northumbria University in Newcastle) that explores how we can make the future of internet connected objects and artefacts. We are particularly interested in exploring how we can do this together, together with families with family members of all ages. During this workshop, we will be crafting and making, with short discussion in between. This activity focuses on crafting only, and does not include any electronics or alike. However, if interested there is an opportunity to stay in touch for future (similar) activities.
If your family might fancy an evening of crafting and tinkering with everyday materials? Come along to enjoy the activity and receive some delicious Dutch Stroopwafels. During the event we will provide refreshments and snacks! Let us know if you would like to join by registering. Please select as many tickets as family members will join.
Location: Commercial Union House, Newcastle upon Tyne
Aimed at: Parent(s) and chid(ren)
Tickets: After selecting one of the two dates, please select as many tickets as family members you intend to bring.
This research has been approved by the Northumbria University Ethics Committee (Reference: 9952). During this workshop, we will record audio to revisit our discussions, and we will take pictures of the crafts and creations made – no identifiable recordings (e.g. photos/video) will be made. Closer to the event date we will send an information sheet for additional information. You can also access the information sheet and consent form here: information sheet, consent form. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the organizer: David Verweij at david.verweij [at] northumbria.ac.uk.
