North Wales Based Artist & Technologist


People who have met me will know of my passion and excitement for all things electronic. I have always had an uncontrollable desire to break everything apart to figure out how it works. Thankfully over the past three decades the people around me have indulged this habit, and as a result I have now found a trained fine artist, who happens to wield a soldering iron rather than a paint brush.


Throughout my time as a practicing artist, I always ended supporting my colleagues with technology within their art practice. My own style of learning is based heavily around doing things the wrong way, to learn the right. With technology this meant that through my "learning process", I ended up with piles of broken equipment and every so often a single piece of "working" horror show.  I have since developed this method as a teaching tool, "learning through breaking".


Technological Disobedience Workshops


For the past 5 years I have been providing a variety of creative technology based workshops, with a special emphasis on electronics and glitch instruments.  My main aim of all my workshops is try and break down the barriers people have engaging with technology and learn that it’s OK to break stuff as its part of learning. Understanding of the components and processes of creative technology is gained an atmosphere of experimental creative play without fear.  It is a philosophy of hands on experiential learning with an emphasis on fun to remove the barriers.


These workshops are primarily aimed at artists and any one interested in tinkering. They can also be tailored to work with engineers or corporate training days to encourage a more creative thinking process.



Approximately 4-6 hours over 1 or two days as required.


Age Range:

Excellent for 11+ (Year 7 onwards), GCSE, A-level, university and adult audiences.

Electronics workshops not really recommended for under 10s due to equipment involved

Ideal for groups of 5-15 people.



Cost varies based on location and duration, but usually is around £250 for a 1 day session + Variable Materials & Travel Costs based on location and workshop requirements.
