The Marvellous Mood Lamp Workshops

October 28, 2011

Stu, our Tinkerer In-Residence facilitated some exciting workshops in the Manchester Art Gallery education suite on 22nd and 23rd October.

Participants made their own mini mood lamp styled by themselves using an old bike wheel and powered using an old phone charger.

They then took some paper, wire, LED’s and electronics and turned a useless old phone charger into a lamp.

There was no upper age limit so anyone who wanted to experiment in electronics and art using recycled materials came along and gave it a go!
