Katy Marshall

Maker, Hacker, Artist

I am a digital artist, maker and tech educator based in Cambridge. I was introduced to the world of digital making back in the summer of 2014 when I worked at an American summer camp as a digital art instructor. It was in the rural Catskills Mountains that I got my first experience using laser cutters, 3D printers and other making tools. Once I returned home, I immediately joined Makespace in Cambridge and have since further developed my skills and understanding of the various tools and equipment it has to offer. In the last couple of years, I’ve written and run several workshops around digital art and making for children, most notably with HackLab, as well as designing and building custom controllers and interactive installations for video games.
