Artist, musician, and electronics wizz Dr Tom Richards (Mini OramicsNonclassical) will be teaching the foundations of electronics in this new workshop series. Divided into two courses, participants will be guided through different component types, reading schematics, and translating them into real prototypes.

In the beginners course we will focus on discrete components and basic ICs, covering the basics of analog and digital electronics. The beginners course will take place over 6 Thursday evenings on April 18th & 25th / May 2nd, 23rd & 30th / June 13th from 6.30pm at Somerset House Studios.

[ Beginner Course SOLD OUT ]

 

In the intermediate course, these basics will be taken further, covering some more specialist IC types and more complex circuits. Here we will also cover soldering and the construction of more permanent prototypes, and we will also do a session on basic schematic capture and PCB layout. The intermediate course will take place over 6 Thursday evenings on June 20th & 27th / July 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th from 6.30pm at Somerset House Studios.

 

The price includes a basic kit of components, and all tools will be provided. An information pack with session and calendar details will be sent to all participants ahead of the first workshop.

You don’t have to be an artist or musician to do this workshop series. We will be using creative applications to illustrate the theory. This will be hands on and practical sessions, keeping mathematics to a minimum, focusing on learning by doing, and how to experiment to get the desired result. The workshop series will NOT cover Arduino / Microprocessors / PICs etc, but will be very useful for those wishing to learn how to make better interfaces for those types of devices.

We can offer a 10% concession for students or people who are unemployed or benefit recipients. If eligible, please email workshops@stagingmhs.local and we can send you a code.

The venue is located on the ground floor of Somerset House and is fully wheelchair accessible with an accessible toilet. If you have any other access requirements, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.
