Image 01

Following their new installation at DAS for Culture Night, Edmund Eva and George Baldwin will be giving a workshop on the processes involved in the making of the work. This will be a creative, new media drawing workshop using Arduino, Processing, Robotics, Lasers and photosensitive mediums. A great workshop for beginners at Arduino/programming and anyone interested in getting into robotics.

This workshop will also be of interest to artists and printmakers used to traditional mediums, due to the innovative use of photosensitive materials.

The robotics of the project (the pan/tilt mechanism and servo motors) are adaptable for lots of other robotics projects including camera mounts, moving sensors, robotic arm projects and so on.

Date: Monday the 25th of September, 1 - 5pm

Limited to 6 participants - (can be more if paired up)
