Here are some upcoming events this week at the Makery. There are many, many events coming soon. Have a look at this post on our website to find out more.

About RJam Imagineers Event : There will be a good mix of things to do and find out about. The main things are:

* Game Making – coding arcade like games – play some made by young people and find out how to do it yourself.* Buggy Battles  – have a play with simple programmable small fighting robot buggies* Textiles and technology – we will be running a project coming up mixing lights and textiles in creative ways – let’s get started by trying out the sewing machines that we have.

RJams (originally Raspberry Pi Jams) were started in Preston by Alan O’Donohoe – they are a great mix of activities and places to share your projects and find out about new ones. Alan is joining us for this launch. He is always entertaining and inspiring!


Venue: Todmorden Makery

Code & Crumble club from the Noisy Toys starting next Monday

Posted on

Noisy Toys would like to announce their new group, Code & Crumble club.

The club starts up on the next 2 Mondays 28th March / 4th April from 4-5pm, and then weekly after the Easter holidays. This will be informal session with partially-led activities in a safe and collaborative working space.

The club runs at the Todmorden Makery, a community workshop & repair centre based in the Todmorden Learning Centre (the old college, next to Aldi).

We have a fantastic game-making project developed by Mick Chesterman, which involves a simple game that turns out to be a bit broken. So… we fix it! Then we learn to develop & design our own games.

We will also have loads of Crumble stuff for more hands-on physical making.

Buggy Battles

No Buggy Battles yet- it’s still exclusive to the Media Museum for now.

We will have a public battle in June, until then we can still build our own and learn some new strategies.
