Fab Academy 2018

Blanket Catherine Blanchard at Verona FabLab for Viva Vittoria VeronaMy final project (work in progress)

You see this blanket with wearable technology? I created it in Winter 2016 thanks to an Aran pattern, Brogna sheep's wool, and pieces I collected at Verona FabLab, and at an electronics market. Now I enrolled in the Fab Academy 2018 to learn how to build every piece I found, to teach them mainly to girls and women in the geographical area of Verona, Italy! What a challenge for me!

My Labs

I am one of the many Founders who contributed to the birth of Verona FabLab in 2014, and a member of the board. Today, I am working with others for the creation of another Fab Lab in the South of Verona, and soon, we want, at the University of Verona.

From January to June 2018, I follow the Fab Academy 2018 program at the nearest Fab Academy node: Opendot Fab Lab in Milan.
