Sew and code a Minimu musical glove
Like sewing? Like music? How would you like to build your own musical instrument that you control with the movement of your hand?
About this Event
The MINI.MU is MI.MU's make-it-yourself musical glove for kids. It is a collaboration between musician Imogen Heap, creative technologist and childrenís author Helen Leigh, Pimoroni and the MI.MU glove team. This make uses the popular, versatile micro:bit to create a friendly, simple and fun crafty code experience!
You will be able to take home your completed glove, and printed materials used in the workshop. Everything is included to make a musical glove from scratch, with no crafting, coding or electronics knowledge required.
Extra kits and other add-ons will be available to purchase but there is no obligation to do so, and you do not need them to complete this project.
