WORKSHOP: DO-IT-YOURSELF AM RADIO

Journalist: Nancy Nourse  Date: November 16, 2011  Region: Sherbrooke

Calling all electro-do-it-yourselfers! Saturday, November 19 at Le Tremplin, the Community Artradio2 Lab of the Foreman Art Gallery is pleased to offer a hands-on electronics workshop that introduces basic radio concepts through experimentation with transmission circuits developed by early radio experimenters during the 1920s. Participants will wind coils, solder circuits, play with antennas and build their very own low-tech free-power crystal radios and narrowcast transmitters. Participants will be able to take home their creations for further experimentation.

The emphasis of this workshop is on playful experimentation and is open to anyone curious about radios and electricity. No previous experience is required (for ages 17 and up). This workshop is presented in conjunction with the Foreman Art Gallery’s current exhibition by Charles Stankievech, ‘Over the Rainbow, Under the Radar’, which explores the history of media and communication technology (presented until Dec. 10).

 The workshop will be conducted in French by a bilingual instructor, Ms. Darsha Hewitt – an artist based in Montreal, Quebec who has presented her work and taught electronics workshops across Canada, in Mexico and Europe … (www.darsha.org).

This special workshop will take place at Le Tremplin located at 95 Wellington Street South, from 1:30p.m. – 5:30p.m. Registration required. Number of places is limited. Cost: $10 (includes all material and equipment needed).
