A public open day was held at Mohill Enterprise Centre on Friday, 5th February ,with representatives from the Manorhamilton FabLab and SPARK programme.
In addition to the graduation activities, presentations and demonstrations were given by Leo Scarff, Ali Farrell and Stuart Lawn.
Leo Scarff gave a show and tell presentation on digital fabrication and creative design. In the coming months, in collaboration with Mohill Enterprise Centre, Leo’s – SPARK – project hopes to energise the local community in the world of digital creation through a series of workshops. The SPARK programme is an initiative of Leitrim Arts Office and the Local Enterprise Office which encourages local companies to engage with local creatives in a mutually beneficial project to develop innovative artworks and ideas.
Mohill Enterprise Centre also hosted a FabLab demonstration as part of the Open Day. Stuart and Ali from FabLab Manorhamilton demonstrated a range of technologies including 3D printing, laser cutting & micro-electronics.
FabLab Manorhamilton was started in late 2014 by a collective of Designers, Engineers and Makers.
It is a digital fabrication facility providing access to a wide range of fabrication technologies that allow enterprises, creatives, schools and hobbyists to turn their ideas into new prototypes and products.
Plans are afoot to develop a QQI Level 5 Digital Fabrication Design Course which will be available at both the Mohill Enterprise Centre and the FabLab Manorhamilton. Watch this space in the coming weeks.
