#SheMakes: the makerfest for Girl Geeks

If you’re full of curiosity about 3D printing, wearables and all the things (!) this event introduces basic Making concepts in a friendly way.

More advanced makers also have the opportunity to get down and dirty with design software and coding, soldering your wearables and messing around with the printers we have for the event.

Join us in exploring what it means to be a Girl Geek Maker! Like all of our events, #SheMakes is a great way to learn new skills, test new business ideas and meet new people to build things with.

Want to make awesome wearables? Got a 3D printer and don’t know how to use it? Want to scan yourself with a 3D scanner? Come and play with us as we explore the possibilities of making.

3D yourself!

The lovely team at The Robots Are Coming have kindly volunteered their time to scan some of our lucky attendees at #SheMakes.

Some of our lucky ladies will get their very own high-quality, full-colour, 3D body scan. They will receive a link to the hosted 3D scan data, to then share on social media when they tell the world how great #SheMakes was!

The scanning process is highly engaging and fascinating to watch, as the 3D data is constructed in real time. Check out some of the ones we literally prepared earlier at our last #SheMakes.

Virtual Drag

So much of the early work in virtual reality has been driven by naked girls presented for a male gaze. Virtual Drag is a virtual reality experience featuring 3d scans of drag queens & kings by Girl Geek Academy member Alison Bennett, Megan Beckwith & Mark Payne.

They have explored the potential of 3D scanning to create cyberspace encounters with the magnificent Philmah Bocks, the divine Art Simone, Jackie Hammer (a bit of a hot mess really…), & the knee-weakening Transylvanian Gypsy Kings (aka TGK).

Alison Bennett is a neuroqueer new media artist who works in ‘expanded photography’. For ‘Virtual Drag’ Bennett collaborated with Megan Beckwith, winner of the inaugural Australia Post Art Prize, dance choreographer and 3D animator described by The Age as a ‘trailblazer’; and Mark Payne, an award winning designer and artist working with photogrammetry.

How do digital fabrication techniques such as 3D printing and other technology such as programmable wearable platforms having a disruptive influence on the industry? How they could be amazing enablers for women wanting to enter this space? Come on a journey with us and discover some new things about the Maker world.

We will also have some samples on 3D printed jewellery including those printing in metals, you can then use your models to order through various 3rd parties that can print your designs in metals like gold and silver.

Learn about 3D design and making your printable stuff, engage with interactive displays and art, hear from guest speakers and play with the 3D printers we have on site.

Workshops will also allow participants to create their own 3D pieces and constructions. Participants will use a variety of media to create smart jewellery, mixed media artworks and architectural pieces.

We will also be using lilypad wearable electronic kits to teach you how to assemble and program wearable tech. You will learn to solder and use conductive thread wiring up lights on your own project.

Got a 3D printer kit or maybe an already assembled 3D printer you are having trouble using? You can bring it in and we will help you put it together or try to debug your problems and get it working.

Join us in exploring what it means to be a Girl Geek Maker! Like all of our events, #SheMakes is a great way to learn new skills, test new business ideas and meet new people to build things with.
