Join internationally renowned light artist Aphra Shemza and programmer Jamie Howard this November for an Interactive Light Art Workshop. Partnering with Ugly Duck, the team will provide a hands-on two-day workshop where participants will learn how to create a sound reactive light sculpture.


“Aphra and Jamie are very passionate and dedicated, they have taught us SO much over the course of these two days!” female, 25-35 yrs

Not only will each participant walk away with a stunning interactive sculpture, they will also develop invaluable skills in the following areas; soldering, basic micro-electronics, prototyping on a breadboard, testing components, circuit integration, Arduino and Arduino programming in C++.

Although no prior knowledge about electronics or Arduino is required participants must be over 18, have manual dexterity and competent computer literacy. This workshop is challenging but rewarding. It will start from the basics and leave participants with the skills and confidence to integrate electronics into their projects in the future.

Materials for the workshop included in the price; Custom made Perspex module, Individually Addressable LED tape, Arduino Nano equivalent, USB cable, Microphone, PCB, Capacitor, Resistors, Wire

Materials above including soldering irons and wire cutters etc… will be provided however participants must bring a laptop with them.
