Customising A Domo – BarCamp Workshop

For this visit to BarCamp Slough2, rather than do a tech talk, I decided to run a workshop on Customising Domo Toys. Some of you may know that I’m a bit of a Domo addict and have a few spares floating around. So I took them with me, along with various crafty bits and pieces such as rainbow Sharpie pens, sequins, glue and various materials.

Some of my own Custom Domos insisted on coming along too, to give folks a few ideas. Then we set to work on our creations – what a great range of styles emerged!

My invention of the day was a little Minion Domo with dungarees, huge milkbottle glasses and a big attitude. I’ve not quite finished him (he needs black gloves and a few spiky strands of hair) but this is what I achieved during the session:

It was great to do something crafty for a change. I’ve enjoyed hands on sessions at other BarCamps in the past, and I would certainly think about running something similar again. Here’s a group pic taken at the end of our session:

Thanks to the folks who came along – it was a lot of fun!
