Bring your soldering iron and hand tools to this workshop to learn how to create sculptures that actually do something!
In this workshop, we’ll be building a firefly together with custom jigs, brass wire, and LEDs.
If you’ve ever wondered how these beautiful sculptures are created, now is your chance to learn.
Instructors: This workshop is taught by Jiri Praus, Kelly Heaton, and Mohit Bhoite, all of who will be in different time zones at the time of this workshop
Jiri Praus's day job is being a full-stack developer, while at night he is an enthusiastic electronic artist combining brass, wood, acrylic, and plastic into unique electronic devices and free-form sculptures. His intricate use of 3D printed fixtures, jigs, and templates to create three-dimensional electronic circuits, sculptures, and devices is an inspiration for thousands of people around the globe.
Kelly Heaton is a mixed-media artist known for her intersection of electronics and visual art. Her creative use of technology evokes humanity’s divergence from nature, meanwhile demonstrating the power of electricity to give profound insight into life on Earth.
