Following our successful EL Wire Wearables workshop, SparkCC was very pleased to host another in our series of events leading up to next month's Lumenmotion festival.



This time around Jedi Master and long-time Sparker Jo would be taking participants through the process of building their own lightsaber from scratch!



In this slightly more advanced workshop, participants were taught basic electronics and soldering skills.



Working together on our Jedi production line we soldered together battery packs...



...cut and stripped wires...

...and put the finishing touches on our lightsaber parts, ready for assembly.



Everyone worked really hard and it was very exciting when the lightsabers began to come together.



The finished lightsabers were illuminated by strips of RGB LEDs allowing the Jedi wielder to change the colour of their blade at will!



Many impromptu lightsaber duels soon broke out...



...and Lumenmotion organiser Brian was soon forced to defend himself against a posse of brave young Jedi:



At the conclusion of the workshop, participants (who had travelled from as far away as Sydney and Newcastle) all went home with the final step of their Jedi training complete!



All that was left was for Jedi Master Jo and SparkCC President James to fight it out to determine who would be presenting the next workshop...
