We describe a package of Mathematica programs, originally devised for summer schools on aperiodic order and quasicrystals, which give an introduction to the construction of aperiodic tilings. The programs explore several approaches to generate aperiodic tilings, concentrating on one-dimensional and two-dimensional examples which can easily be visualised.
