Get ready for the Oxford Light Festival by making and coding your very own beautiful lantern. Session 1 of 6. In this series of workshops, you’ll make a circuit with multi-coloured lights and learn how to control those lights using computer code. Create a wearable design, a paper lantern or illuminate your bike or home to bring together art and engineering. Six sessions, with equipment available by post, and all workshops available on after the live event.

To take part in this series of events, you’ll need a laptop and an Arduino starter kit. Purchase kit here (£15.99)
