The Maker Library Network is hosting a two-week programme from 21 August – 5 September, for British Council Connect ZA’s Innovation Month. During a takeover of the Ithuba Gallery in Braamfontein, Johannesburg, Maker Librarians and guests will be exploring the boundaries of making by bringing together traditional practices and exciting new technologies, to engage enthusiasts, curious public, students, hackers, and makers of all definitions.
This is an open invitation to get involved by signing up to participate in these exciting workshops, ranging from the making of digital business card printers, paper and mechatronic engineering, to skills swaps and demonstrations. Or simply come spend some time in our pop-up Maker Library.
Join us for the opening of Innovation Month at the Ithuba Gallery inn Braamfontein, on 20 Aug, from 6pm.
