Event Details

Most people think of Lasers when you mention Holograms. Or that thing R2D2 did in Star Wars projecting Princess Leia. Or even those security holograms on credit cards. None of of these seem like something you can do at the kitchen table by hand do they? 

Hologram ExampleIn this workshop we will teach you some of the basics of holograms and reflection, and then we will discuss the concept of abrasion holograms.  And then you will make a few!

Our Hand Drawn holograms are sunlight visible (no need for special lasers). However, they do require a pinpoint lightsource to view well, so they may not show up well inside (sort of like many classic foil holograms).  They may not have the same level of detail as foil holograms, but you will be able to transfer a 3d geometric shape onto clear plastic, then see that object float in the plastic and allow you to see around it from side to side. Each person will be able to make several holograms, and we will send you home with the tools required.

No harsh chemicals or darkroom required!
Artistic skill not required!  

Instructor, Adric Menning has had a lifetime love of Holograms, and even built a sand table and refurbished an old He-Ne checkout laser for making holograms for his 6th grade science fair.
