learn to build your own!
3D printers are evolving and are quickly finding their way into ateliers and even our homes. This rapid development is due to its fertile community, where enthusiasts openly share information about building and designing with 3D printers. This is your chance to get involved, learn how to build a 3D printer and start printing your 3 dimensional designs.
In collaboration with 3D printer expert Bas Molkenboer from 3dprintingforyou and artist Eric Klarenbeek, we set up a workshop where you can learn how to build your own 3D printer!
The model we will be building is one of the latest 'Delta' types, called a Rostock.
This workshop is meant for all levels of expertise.
If this is the first time you heard about a 3D printer, it's a great introduction to start building and using them. If you have already been building 3D printers, this could be an opportunity to ask expert Bas Molkenboer your more advanced questions, e.g. about modification of the unit....
the Honours Fashion Show
On August 22, 11 of the most talented students of the AMFI, will show each a small collection in Mediamatic. The show starts at 19.30. You can buy a ticket (5 euro) at the door.
The show is part of the honours programs of the AMFI. This is a special program where 11 students are selected because of their outstanding study results. These students travel to Paris under a stylist's guide, to see all the fashios shows in order to get inspired. Back in Amsterdam, they design a small collection and present it. This time they choose to show their work at Mediamatic.
HRNS 14 will take place at Mediamatic, VOC-Kade 10, Amsterdam on Friday August 22. Entrance fee is €5 (free for Mediamatic members). You can only buy tickets at the door. Doors are open at 19.00, sh...
The current Russian boycott brings back memories. Two years ago, The Netherlands was stuck with a big overload of onions. To prevent them from rotting or being trashed, Mediamatic rescued a quarter of a million onions from Jo Flens, a farmer form Texel.
Do we need another Onion Fest? We can only urge you to start eating those Dutch vegetables and hope that there won't be any vegetables left to save!
Mushrooms are magic. Grow your own!
Fungi will play a key role in the future. Also they are a lot of fun. We are hosting workshops to get to know this promising organic substance. In our cleanroom you will learn about the spores of the psilocybe cubensis, about its mycelium (the roots) and grow your own magic mushrooms.
The psilocybe cubensis is a mushroom that is relatively easy to grow. During this workshop, we will make a substrate for the mushrooms to grow on. This substrate will be infected with spores in our Cleanroom. The Cleanroom is a sterile space, that prevents other spores and bacteria to contaminate the substrate. Participants can take the infected substrate home, where it will turn into mycelium and eventually in mushrooms , after 2 to 4 weeks. You will receive a handout that explains exactly what to do with the substrate at home.
This workshop will take place at Mediamatic Fabriek (VOC-Kade, 10, Amsterdam...
