This is a community meet-up event for people who are into electronics. It’s a round table discussion around rectangular tables about things that are ‘electroniky’ and ‘programmy’ and ‘makery’ and ‘classical hackery’. Come to pick the brains of our local techno-gurus, be a local techno-guru, or(1) just sit back and bask in the ‘geekery’.
The events usually consist of mini-extemporaneous presentations and discussion about pending projects.
***This event is free to the public*** Bring your own pocket protector.

Expect to find Confluent completely transformed with vendors such as face painters and tarot card readers, a food truck, a pop-up beer garden, and performances from local bands, belly dancers, drag queens, DJs, and more. Come out for this one-night spectacular! Additionally, there will be artwork and tech that are in theme with “GLOW” from blacklight paintings, to light-up and kinetic sculptures.

Gelli Plates are great for mono printing and a mixed media artists dream! It is a great way to create random backgrounds, layers of color, and texture. We will talk about how to make your own homemade gelli plate and how to incorporate your home art supplies and items around the house to create mono prints, making collage papers, mail art, and art journal backgrounds. We will use deli paper, foam stamps, stencils, textures, rubber stamps, card stocks, sticker paper, and mixed media pens, As a bonus project we will be stitching together our own art journal with the gelli prints we make. So, leave your perfectionist side at home and delve into the art of RANDOM!
This class is a lot of fun! But super messy! So please be sure to bring an apron or clothes you don’t mind getting paint on.
All supplies included!
