Arduino Lantern Workshop - Programming and Art!

Still Moon Arts Society is hosting a 4-day Arduino Lantern Workshop, combining art and technology to create beautiful lanterns with a custom LED light show. Participants will learn how to use Arduino to program their own light patterns, then learn how to make bamboo lanterns to house their custom light display. The workshop is facilitated by @Johnny5 Andrew Tuline, and runs from September 3rd to 6th at the Slocan Park Fieldhouse, 5:00-8:00pm each day.

The 4-day workshop costs $100 before Eventbrite fees. Each participant is provided with a pre-assembled LED kit, which includes an Arduino Nano, a 1 meter strip of WS2812 based addressable LED’s, a USB cable and a USB power bank. Basic programming knowledge is recommended, and you must bring your own laptop with pre-installed apps.

The Renfrew ravine moon festival is a really cute family-oriented lantern festival. :100: recommend to attend the festival even if you aren’t in the LED workshop. Much magical fall energy.
