Handmade Electronics Lab is a rigorous hands-on introduction to DIY electronics for artists.

Participants will build and work with basic audiovisual circuits, sensors and mechanical components that can be used in responsive and electro-mechanical art. Though some basic theories and formulas will be introduced, the workshop emphasizes a bottom-up approach to the medium through playful experimentation and open exchange.

  • Participants will learn how to :
  • Build and prototype circuits on a breadboard
  • Read electronic schematics
  • Troubleshoot and use basic test equipment
  • Access pertinent technical resources

The goal is to impart the basic technical skills, comprehension and vocabulary necessary to approach the electronic medium with curiosity and confidence. Handmade Electronics Lab equips participants with specialized and practical knowledge fundamental to several current and emerging platforms within the technological arts milieu. This course will be taught in English by a bilingual teacher. Minimum 8 participants.

This course is for beginners / intermediate. Price will be adjusted if this minimum is not reached
