<<< WORKSHOP INFORMATION >>>

Sunshine Partnerships SEED BOMB workshop: Seed Bombs are designed to enable seeds to be sown in a hard to reach place and in locations where the gardner is unable to spend long preparing the soil for conventional sowing. Sunshine will provide supplies and instruction for attendees to make up to 5 seed bombs. Concluding the workshop, we’ll take to the surrounding area to plant seed bombs or attendees can take away to plant in other areas. No gardening experience necessary. Open to all ages. Will be using all natural supplies of clay, dirt and seeds. Don’t expect to get too dirty, but feel free to embrace Mother Earth.

Illuminated Paper Circuits: Build a simple circuit incorporating LED’s on a paper or vellum substrate. Course encourages using simplistic means to add a low power light system to an art piece, drawing, card, or folded form.

Circuit Bend Basics: A hands on exploration of a battery powered toy. The process involves creating an output jack with volume adjustment as well as a pitch dial. Basic soldering skills recommended.
