Half-Term Antics: Code Your Own Tartan

About Half-Term Antics: Code Your Own Tartan

Is someone you know a budding computer programmer or weaver? This workshop is a chance for them to mashup traditional tartan design with modern digital technology.

With just a few lines of code they’ll draw shapes, create designs and see their imagination come alive on the screen. After creating their tartan, the finished design will be published on the internet on an online digital tartan gallery which can be shared with friends and family.

Experience: No previous computer coding knowledge is needed for this workshop.

Materials: Please bring a laptop if you can.

Please note: Sign up at reception. Workshop suitable for age 10+. Parental/guardian supervision is required for the duration of the activity.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Half-Term Antics: Code Your Own Tartan are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
