Technology + Art
Wee Replicators offers classes, courses and birthday parties designed to introduce children and young people to advanced technologies such as 3D printers and pairing these with creative approaches allowing young participants the freedom to experiment, explore and build confidence in their own ability and ideas.
The classes, course and parties are perfect for all young people no matter if they are naturally very arty or whether they are more technically minded.
Confidence. Resilience. Passion. Curiosity.
Wee Replicators was founded by Denise Milne (Allan) in 2015 to provide children and young people with access to 3D printing technologies. Since then it has grown into a internationally recognised small business which seeks to provide everyone with opportunities to try new things and witness their own capacity. Denise has since become a researcher in Making and Empowerment, publishing research on the benefits that making things using technology and art can bring. She has worked extensively with children from all backgrounds in schools, community settings and in hospitals.She has done a significant amount of work with young people with mental health conditions and has found that her approach of using art and technology can not only engage a young audience but can make a real difference to the way they see themselves and their abilities.
Wee Replicators has recently expanded into premises in Edinburgh. Here a team of staff delivers classes, workshops, courses and birthday parties on site in our workshop while Denise continues to provide the mobile service which she currently delivers where it is not possible for groups to travel.
