About us

Create your own solar powered artwork in this free 2-part workshop (16 September & 30 September) hosted in collaboration with Smart Citizens and Art and Energy. Through this workshop you will learn the fascinating skills of reverse glass painting, laser cutting and gets hands-on with solar cells! Join us to illuminate your ideas and bring home your own sustainable artwork.

In the Part 1 Workshop, you will begin creating your designs. The Art and Energy team will demonstrate the process of reverse glass painting and support you to decorate your own glass sheet.

Moving on to the Part 2 Workshop you will begin assembling your artwork at Fab Lab Plymouth. Working with the Fab Lab team, you will laser cut, construct and decorate a simple wooden frame. You will then add solar cells to your painted glass, with the support of Art and Energy, and finish your artwork by placing your glass into the frame. At the end of the workshop you will have constructed and assembled your own solar powered artwork to take home!
