If you didn’t make it out to ARTspiration at the Fleisher last Saturday, well… you blew it. But seriously, it was another great festival; the rain held off for us as we staffed a table with a couple new volunteers (yay! Thanks David and Kim!) and it turned out to be a really beautiful day. We had the usual oohs and aahs for our table full of old electronics to make jewelry and sculpture with. This was our 3rd time coming to ARTspiration, and it’s been nice to see the same faces that are excited to come to our table and get their hands on our electronics. Of course there are lots more chances for all ages to play with these components, it’s become kind of a staple activity for us. We’re looking forward to stocking up on supplies at the upcoming Ham Fests in the area (that’s for Ham Radio enthusiasts – their swap meets are a great place to stock up on old supplies). If you’re interested in going, let us know, you need to get there early so carpooling may be a good idea!
Pledge on our kickstarter today!
Help us give Philly artists a chance to take our classes and make amazing new work with technology. If we meet our goal, it will be matched by the Knight Foundation. The last day of the campaign is Monday, so add your pledge today.
