The first Storytellers’ Kitchen workshop kicked off on February 10 2017, featuring a seasonally appropriate theme: Valentine’s Day! Saad Chinoy led the group of participants through the 2+ hour long session, during which he introduced the basics of augmented reality and how to incorporate simple AR to jazz up a handmade card for Valentine’s Day. The idea was to come together, learn and apply a new skill that can help any content creator elevate their stories with digital. All that was needed was imagination, basic artistic skills, and a phone/laptop by which to access free resources: Google Photos and Layar App! Everything else – art materials, WiFi, food, good times, e.t.c. were provided.

Take a look!
