Electroluminescent wire (often abbreviated as EL wire) is a thin copper wire coated in a phosphor that glows when an AC voltage is applied to it. It can be used to decorate vehicles or structures, as rope light or Christmas lights are often used. However, unlike these types of strand lights, EL wire is not a series of light, but an unbroken line of visible light. Moreover, it is extremely thin and flexible, and thus may be used, for example, in clothing or costumes.

This workshop will teach you how to solder EL Wire with low temp solders. You will learn about stripping wire, soldering with low temp solders, and creating beautiful blinking wire with a three-phase connector. A favorite at Burning Man, this workshop is not only an opportunity to learn basic soldering techniques, it is a way to unleash your creative potential. Lliven up your living space! Make a terrific hat or a blinking bicycle!

Starter kits can be purchased directly through Cleverwerx as part of the registration process or separately in the EL Wire product section. A list of items you will need to bring to class will also be provided.
