NERD CRAFT: InterAccess Summer Workshop Series (July-Sept dates)

Some very cool sounding workshops from InterAccess. For full listings see their website.


Registration is now open for the InterAccess Summer Workshop Series

InterAccess's Interactive Art Workshop Series provides artists with the tools needed to begin exploring the creative uses of technology. Participants gain a solid technical foundation for realizing their artistic vision. This summer, we are happy to introduce a new type of workshop to our roster: our $19.99 party nites! Pay only $19.99 for these workshops, plus you get a free drink to help cool you off on those hot summer evenings. With a combination of our staple workshops and our workshop party nites, there is something for everyone. Here's to a summer of cement floor studios (i.e a cool place to hang out), fun projects and of course, a little bit of learning!

Pinhole Photography with Control: Low Tech, High Science ... and a little bit of Math
Date: Thursday, July 31, 7-10pm

The ultimate in camera hacking, pinhole photography allows you to make cameras out of just about anything and frees you from the limitations (and costs) inherent in using a manufactured camera.

Circuit Etching

Cost: $60 (members) $75 (non members)

Atari Punk Console
Date: Wednesday, August 20, 7-10pm
Cost: $19.99 plus a free drink
Instructor: Rob Cruickshank
This is an ideal workshop for those who have know some electronics, but would like to pick up some fabrication skills. We'll learn how to solder, and along the way, we'll build the classic Forrest M. Mims circuit now commonly known as the Atari Punk Console.

Frame Frame
Date: Thursday, September 4, 7-10pm
Cost: $19.99 plus a free drink
Instructor: Stan Krzyzanowski

Cost: $120 (members) $150 (non members)
Instructor: Jessica Field
Get in touch with your sensitive side, and learn how to incorporate motion, light, touch and other sensors in your works. This course teaches students how to use sensors in their media works. The course is designed to help students to overcome the intimidation of electronics by encouraging a playful attitude to help deal with the pitfalls of dealing with the medium.
