LEDs introduce myself first

My name is Ralph, you can also call me benadski. I'm an engineer and a LED connaisseur. When I was a kid I was always playing with LEDs and other electronics. I'd like to teach you how you can use them too without breaking the delicate lights. You do not need to study or have magic skills for this workshop.

LEDs start

This workshop is all about the very basics of LED lights. You will learn how they work and how to use them. After a short intro it's "hands on" time! :)


PLEASE BRING SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO PIMP UP WITH SOME COLOURFUL LIGHTS!


Think of: -paintings -block of wood -plain old bike light -tennis ball -0.5L bottle or plastic cup -figurines -anything translucent -anything that you can drill holes in


LED me tell you some more

After you have learned how LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) basically work, you will merge them with a piece of art or other material of your choosing. We will be soldering them, add some other parts and maybe sand them a little to create a more even glow. I have also some filtering and reflective material to bring that extra sparkle out!

We have many tools for soldering and drilling, but if you happen to have that yourself, please bring it to the workshop. If you have an old phone charger or other small charger, bring that too, it will power your lights! (I have some as well, probably enough, but if I spare mine I can host more workshops in the future.)
