The Spark program is an initiative of Leitrim Arts Office and the Local Enterprise Board which encourages local companies to engage with local creatives in a mutually beneficial project to develop innovative artworks and ideas. This year’s creative is Leo Scarff who has a background in fine art, design and education. For over 20 years Leo has been working in the digital fabrication arena and in more recent years he has developed collaborative practice with Maker groups, Fablabs and educational programs such as Harnessing Creativity, Leitrim Livecraft and Creative Frame. In the coming months, in collaboration with Mohill Enterprise Centre, Scarff’s project hopes to energise the local community in the world of digital creation through a series of workshops.
Free Fablab Demonstrations – Friday 5th February
In tandem with Leo’s project, Mohill Enterprise Centre will hold a series of free Fablab demonstration days. Stuart Lawn from Fablab Manorhamilton (www.fablabmh.org) will give presentations on a range of technologies including 3D Printing, Laser cutting & Electronics. Leo will also present his thoughts on digital creativity and innovation.
The popularity of Fablabs in recent years is the way in which the labs provide the environment in which anyone can bring their thoughts to the table of technology and creativity and create something truly exciting in their own education or in the way they interact with other like-minded people or maybe the next smart technological gadget.
