Join us and spend a morning exploring the intersection where technology, art and electro-dough meet!
DIY Electro Dough promises to take a hands on approach to discovering the possibilities of using electronics and programming in creating physical objects. During this workshop you’ll get to mould and create your own responsive and interactive sculptures using LEDs, batteries and playdough! One of the most enjoyable ways to build your own switches & construct your own circuits.
Whether you want to teach your kids about electronics or you want a new and easy way to learn the basic principles of electornics and circuitry come and join us for the workshop and the launch of our brand new and sparkly Electro Dough kit.
There are two types of tickets:
• Single person ticket: Includes 1 x Kit with recipe book and ready made dough for the workshop
• Adult and child ticket: Includes 1 x Kit with recipe book and ready made dough for you to take part and use the kit together during the workshop.
You will leave with some great skills and some great objects and an understanding of how to start experimenting with electro dough.
The workshop includes our brand new Electro Dough Kit for you to take home and carry on playing with, including recipe book with tips and further ideas.
Dough for you to play & learn with
It also includes a drink and a croissant from the famous Rough Trade Cafe! (Seriously, its an awesomely good deal)
It is important to note that there are small parts in this kit and adult supervision is required. Also, because the conductive dough is extremely salty, the components and terminals will corrode over time. I suggest cleaning them with a damp cloth after playing with your Squishy Circuits to promote longevity.
This kit is based on the great work by the students at the Thomas Lab at the University of St. Thomas in their development of Squishy circuits.
