co-creation - This work on co-creation was derived from an interest allowing end users to customise products. The work evolved from focusing on a product to designing the means of co-creating.
3d scanning - I have experimented with several tools for potential use in co-creation activities. 3D scanning strikes me as an ideal way of removing the need for participants to have CAD skills to create 3D digital data.
See wiki.makerbot.com/3d-scanner for 3D scanner instructions.
claywork - This sheet details some reflective research carried out into creating form with pottery.
pilot study - A workshop designed to explore ideas around co-creation. The workshop intends to produce useful design outcomes as well as engaging the participants in the subject.
pilot study - Sample images from the pilot Watch Craft workshop.
pilot study outcomes - 6 participants each produced an animal and watch model. Feedback during the workshop and post workshop interviews highlights the weaknesses and strengths of the approach.
toolkit design - The insights from a pilot co-creation workshop were used to develop a toolkit, called "enable others to create" which consists of a instruction booklet and activity workcards.
