Electroluminescent Wire (EL Wire) is an easy way to make things glow. It's colorful, flexible, and easy to power with batteries.I'll be teaching what EL wire is, how to connect it, and what is needed to make your own glowing art.Included in the class fee are 1m or so of wire, a battery-powered inverter, and an information sheet for soldering your own splices and connections. Learn how to measure and cut the length of wire you need, and what is needed to power your creation.See what you can make for halloween!
Last time I only got half a connection soldered.
I'll be using this time to work on my EL Jack-o-Lantern.
Come and ask about EL Wire, or work on your own projects!
Giving this another try. If you're interested in making high-contrast low-energy light shows, ElectroLuminescent Wire is a great way to do it. Come to the workshop and learn how to measure and cut wire to the length you need, as well as finding the electronic controls needed to power the light.

Join us for an evening of hacking Electroluminescent Wire, a low energy way to make things glow in the dark.
It takes a bit of soldering skill to cut and assemble the wire, inverter, and battery. You'll learn how to do this and come away with the skill to make your own high-tech gear.
Me and MRE were hanging out at the space tonight and decided to make it prettier.
We used the Mac OS X Server motherboard that we had so much fun extracting during the clean-up, a bunch, I mean, a freaking lot of EL Wire and a hot glue gun.
The result is a hellish THS glow-in-the-dark sign!
This is very much a work in progress. The next steps include:
- bitch-slabbing some screens on it to display error message,
- make it creepy glitter, like an old las vegas shady neon sign,
- make some LED randomly blink on it as in old sci-fi movies computers,
