Ealaín Solas (Light Art)

Come join us for a fun and illuminating workshop of light art with polarisation to celebrate the UN International Day of Light (IDL). IDL is an annual event to educate and promote the area of optics and photonics.

This workshop will kick off with a short presentation on polarisation and why it’s important and afterwards there will be a hands-on demonstration that will combine optics (light) and the use of fabrication techniques. Each participant will assemble a laser cut holder with 3D printed parts and then will design their own polarisation artwork. Each kit can be taken home.

 Workshop lead by Laura Tobin and Jeffrey Roe.
