An ongoing project to build a set of machines, workshop tools, devices and products that help people learn through making.
I’m teaching a course in digital fabrication – and learning by making – at the University of Brighton.
Following on from Fab Academy, I’m learning Processing, the programming language for visual art, interactivity and generative design.
I help organisations use the web, collaborate with digitally connected communities, and harness grassroots innovation. I work across research, design, and strategy.
In 2018, I worked on this new online service for Knowledge Transfer Network to help people develop innovative products.
From January to June 2018, I took part in Fab Academy, the globally-distributed learning programme of the Fablab network.
Hello Shenzhen is bilateral residency exchange programme connecting makers in the UK and China.
An open source exhibition exploring the future of manufacturing: digital, customised, localised, and at scale.
A European research project investigating the impact of making on creative society, with the University of Westminster.
Looking Sideways is a podcast about making – how we make things, and how those things make us. I talk to smart people about technology, craft, innovation, and design.
2015-18 (Currently on hiatus)
A collaborative project to build a critical community around making. We bring people together to learn about diverse making cultures, support new grassroots activity, and cast a critical eye over the conventional stories of making: its past and future, its politics and impact.
I edited and published a fanzine about making, designed to bring the maker movement into people’s homes.
I was the co-founder and director of the UK’s biggest independent DIY technology festival.
