Together with Leo Scarff and Stuart Lawn from the FabLab in Manorhamilton you would make wonderful geometric constructions like the geodesic structure or the geodesic dome. You can join us for our Family day of if you would like to come with a school or class let us know and we would only be too delighted to tellyou what we have in store. The FabLabs lasercut geodesic kits will be available to buy on the day just in case you want to bring home as well.
