The next Northampton Inspire Network Meeting is next Wednesday January 28th at 4.30pm.
We’ll be in Sulgrave 034 (the art room) with refreshments available from 4pm.
We’re going to be making creatures like these (on the right) using wire, paper, glue and tape. Then we’ll be setting them into digital environments and manipulating them.
This is an opportunity to connect physical and digital art, learn to use green screen and be creative with a supportive group of lecturers, teachers, students and teaching assistants.
You can book a free ticket through eventbrite and read more information
