The Magical World of Augmented Reality: Be with everyone you love this Christmas by augmenting cards and gifts with personal video messages.

This half day workshop will show you how to create Augmented Reality (AR) cards and gifts that you can send to friends and family. Our AR app is available on Android devices, iPhones, and iPads, and can be used to reveal your hidden personal video messages.
Organised by Creativtek Ltd, this workshop is designed for all skill levels and no knowledge of Augmented Reality or how it works is necessary.

Bring along photos or pictures, or take some inspiration from our craft table to make your own card or gifts, or use our props in personal video messages.

By the end of the workshop you will:
• Know more about AR
• Create a card or gift that reveals a personal video message when viewed through our AR app
• Be able to create more of your own AR experiences in your own time
