Our Lasers and Lanterns workshops allow young makers to laser-cut their very own designed Mid-Autumn Lanterns using recycled cardboard materials, thereby hacking traditions with modern maker technology in a sustainable way.
Expanding on our Lasers & Lanterns workshops that were held at Dim Sum Labs in Hong Kong, featured in a project by Design Trust HK and which curriculum was part of the Fab Foundation’s new Scaling a Community of Practice for Education in STEM through Digital Fabrication (SCOPESdf) project announced at FAB13 in Santiago, Chile, we are pleased to partner with Ogilvy & Mather to bring this workshop to Shenzhen Maker Faire 2017 in an updated form that allows young makers to also power their lanterns by making their own battery from recycled and/or readily available materials.
