Past Event

Creative coding is an accessible way to create stunning digital art. Over two days, creative coder and designer Jessica In will teach you how to use code as a form of creative expression while also introducing you to the fundamentals of object-orientated programming.

Make impressive digital drawings and patterns using ‘Processing’, a Java programming environment developed to allow visual artists to “sketch” with code. With these designs, you will program a pen plotter to produce physical prints to take home.

As well as new digital tools for application in your creative projects, you will develop an understanding of coding concepts to form a foundation for learning new programming languages.

This workshop is open to all levels. No previous coding experience is required.

Jessica In is a creative coder and designer working across architecture, installation and design projects, whilst teaching at the Bartlett School of Architecture. Check out her work on Instagram @shedrawswithcode and
