This hands-on workshop is designed for artists who want to learn basic principles related to electronic art.

In a Do-It-Yourself spirit, participants will discover physical phenomena related to electricity, such as electromagnetism and electrochemistry. They will  learn how to use integrated circuits and to connect motors, light and sensors. The workshop aims to provide access to expertise and valuable resources to undertake the design of circuits and add mechanical components to create a tactile, sound or electro-mechanical art.

Through the realization of a sound synthesizer project (Atari Punk Console), participants will learn basic soldering techniques. The last day of the workshop will take place at Fab Lab du PEC (Montreal) where they will  finalize their project and meet a community of tinkerers.

Participants will learn to:
– read the technical schematics;
– build prototype circuits;
– soldering components on an electronic circuit.
