There are at least four events that it is worth keeping an eye out for before the bank holiday weekend bringing March to a close. Three are located in Italy and one in England. They range from a robotics workshop for makers to conferences, lectures and an informal meeting for all types of creatives. Put the dates in your diary and have a good week.
Between 25 and 29 March, have a chat with the students participating in the Smart Surfaces workshop in Sarno. During the five days of courses and workshops in the province of Salerno, there will be tutorials on how to use the Rhinoceros and Grasshopper software programs. These will be followed by a digital manufacturing module on how to transform bits into atoms.
