Wits Art Museum and Fak’ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival are hosting a free and dynamic coding workshop for all ages and all levels of experience. Using beadwork from the WAM collection, Tegan Bristow will illustrate how you can use beadwork patterns as a reference for learning the basics of creative coding in Processing (www.processing.org). An initial presentation of ideas will be followed by a coding lesson. If you are interested in staying on for this lesson, please bring a laptop or be okay with sharing one.
Underground parking is available for the evening. Entrance to the parking left off Jorissen Street, after Station Street intersection.
