Workshops

Darcy has continued to teach electronics workshops and ongoing learning series that focus on electronics and audio.   These workshops have been taught at various schools and hackerspaces across the U.S. such as the School of Art Institute in Chicago, The Perot Museum of Science, Portland Northwest College of Art, S1 of Portland, OR, Dallas Makerspace, Pumping Station: One Chicago Hackerspace, and many more.  To inquire about hosting a workshop in your space, send an email inquiry to Darcy@DarcyNeal.com

A HUGE thanks to OshPark for helping make these workshops possible through their generous PCB fabrication donations!  These PCBs were used for my synthesis workshop with Nicolas Collins at the School of Art Institute in Chicago: SAIC.

Around 2013 I taught a synth soldering workshop at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Tx.  These kits were based on the circuit design I created for Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips, who used the design during his “Sleeping on the Roof” tour.

He used a compact version while on tour, and I later created a custom enclosure for him as a commission.
