A drop-in-when-you-can Turtlestitching workshop from 10:00 to 17:00 this Thursday 19 October in room 0.11 in the Lloyd Institute at TCD. Turtlestitch is a jigsaw-programming environment for creating embroideries from code. Bring your brain, a laptop or tablet, something material you’d like to embroider on, and you can use my programmable embroidery machine to stitch your own design. I have thread in primary colours, metallic, luminous and conducting (bring your own LEDs / batteries). Halloween themes may be creatively fruitful! ‘something you’d like to embroider on’ could mean anything from a small square to a t-shirt or hoody. I’d humbly suggest not something too precious in case it all goes wrong. There is no set start or stop time, but just to make some kind of order out of chaos, I’ll do an introduction on the hour, starting at 11:00 (assuming anyone turns up!). If you’d like to start now: www.turtlestitch.org And no need to RSVP, but let me know if you are coming!

HTML/CSS Workshop

Tue, Sep 1, 2020 10:00 AM

This event will show kids how to make their own website. This will be done using HTML/CSS. It will be done over three days. The first day will be an introduction to HTML/CSS talking through the different tags they will be using and we will practice some basic coding to get started. The second day we will go through some more advanced tags and think of some ideas of what they want to put on their website. We will practice some more from day one and start on making the website. The third day we will put the simple website together using all the information covered on the first two days. The website will be about the kid's favourite celebrity which will include headings, bullet points, paragraphs, pictures and a video all about their favourite celebrity. By the end of the 3 days, the kids will have a good understanding of the basics of HTML/CSS and how to make a simple website.
