With almost 1000 workspaces worldwide, Fab Labs are a global phenomenon that allow communities and individuals to access a wide range of computer controlled fabrication equipment. The Fab Lab based at the Nerve Centre in Derry is at the forefront of promoting these workspaces throughout the island of Ireland and their facilitation of this event will ensure the latest tools, technologies and expertise are available to everyone attending.
The event will run from 10.30 to 16.30 and the day will be divided up into a number of different workshop sessions. The morning workshops will cater mostly for local groups, allowing them to see how a Fab Lab could benefit their activities. In the afternoon, the general public, of all ages, are welcome to come and use the Fab Lab equipment. At the end of each session participants will have made something to take home.
It is advisable to book in order to guarantee a place in one of the workshop sessions.
