Hi, I’m Caron, online adventurer & explorer. I am of course opening my digital doors for FunPalaces 2020.
Geographically I’m in Long Eaton (East Midlands) just off J25 of the M1. But for this event… No travel is necessary!
This years is a Midlands Funpalace with 2 sessions. A set of 3 online workshops from 11-3 on Sat 3rd and an online connected arts and crafts hangout on Sun 4th also from 11-3.
Two very different experience but both accessed online.
The workshop sessions on Zoom can accommodate 100, the equivalent of a large-sized village hall, also the capacity of a TEDx event, while the day 2 session in Whereby is the equivalent of a meeting room in a boardroom style configuration seating 12 or a large (by my standards) home gathering.
- Saturday 3rd is creating something digital
- Sunday 4th is creating something non-digital
Both are taking place in online spaces. As a creative and producer, I am as interested in the exploration of the spacial experience as I am the creation of stuff resulting from the sessions. I look forward to welcoming you to my screen.
Note for Sunday…
I am crocheting ballet slippers and house socks right now. I also enjoy making bags and hats circle looming. Bring an existing project or drop by if you want to learn about circle looming or starting to crochet. Lots of YouTube tutorials to share, things I have made and stuff I want to make.
Lunch and PM sessions on Saturday will be accompanied by real-time Closed Captioning.
Saturdays workshop on Zoom to create your own virtual background will run 3 rimes.
