This summer between 19th and 29th August, I've attended to #SSOM15 Summer School Of Making at Howest IDC. This event is addressed to professionals, graduates, students and PhD-students from several creative-technical disciplines who want to learn hands-on techniques and perfect their making skills. The summer school of making is an intensive experience. Based on your personal interest, you will choose and attend in a set of workshops during the day and open labs in the evening.
