About the Camp

Electric Wonderland is a 7-day international maker/hacker camp in Croatia combining art, technology, culture and science with DIY (do-it-youself), DIWO (do-it-with-others), DITO (do-it-together) cultures.

International and domestic guests are invited to teach, collaborate or do a residence during the camp, BUT the participants of the camp can also take their part in leading workshops, facilitating OFF the Grid Labs, guiding a hiking or field trips, or do what they think might be interesting to the camp participants. Lectures, presentations and public small talks around the campfire are also an important part of the program, as well as mini ambient sound performances, installations and spontaneous jamming. We also do night skywatching.

Building a Geodesic DomePeron 8 (HR)

We are building in 2023 a real dwelling in the form of a geodesic dome to sustain within the location of Camp Velebit for many editions of the Electric Wonderland camp. The scope of the dome is 7,5m and cca 4m high. The dome is prepared and partially built before the beginning of our camp, meaning it will be finished and opened on the second day of EW2023. After that, activities will be moved and set-up in the dome. If you apply for this masterclass you will get a unique opportunity to learn how to build a concrete dome and take part in the activities of setting it up.

CircuitCircle workshopAlwin Weber

CircuitCircle workshop offers an opportunity to solder a wide range of DIY synthkits (Screamo, LDRerror, TouchSynth, etc.) and also some sound modules for circuit bending (Delay, Loopmodules). You can learn how to solder, build your own little noise setup with this combination of kits and he will show you how to use your noise toys in a proper way. Afterwards people can jam together and perform in the participant orchestra. So stay tuned for some funky and weird DIY experience.

CircB3ndLabAlwin Weber

Circuit bending is the creative customization of the circuits within electronic devices such as low-voltage, battery-powered guitar effects, children's toys, digital synthesizers or any device to create new musical or visual instruments/device/electronic monster or sound generators.
During the camp you can bring your desired object/toy/instrument and try to circuit bent it. If you are stuck somewhere in the process, there are people you can ask about the bent you should do.

Radionica ZapesynthnicaMonika Pocrnjić

Zapesynthnica is a synthesizer on a bracelet. "Stepped-tone generator" is the official name of the synthesizer based on the 555 chip, and its author Forrest Mims called it the "Sound Synthesizer" in 1982, later it got the name by which most people know it today: the Atari punk console. It is an old idea in a new form. You will make a wearable sound system that is simple to make, but can provide hours of fun thanks to the possibility of controlling it with light. A wonderful journey both for those who are taking their first steps into the world of DIY sound synthesizers, and for those who, with its cv inputs, will connect it to a modular synthesizer.

LetsPrintOurselves!Eva Badanjak

Screen Printing technique is popular because it represents the do-it-yourself philosophy of printing. It is used for printing posters, clothing and various materials in the non-commercial industry or underground scene. Participants will go through all the stages necessary to get the finished product: technical preparation - preparation of printing equipment; sieve preparation, creative preparation - selection and production of motifs for printing, paints and emulsions, printing - selection of materials (textiles, T-shirts, bags) and the whole printing process with inks and emulsions up to the screen cleaning stage.

Illusion boxPaula Bučar

At the workshop participants will create light objects - dioramas that will be illuminated with LEDs. Dioramas are made of paper according to the design of the participants. It looks like a theater box whose scene consists of a series of plans, or layers of cut silhouettes and creates the illusion of depth. Museums and educational institutions still use dioramas to depict historical events, natural habitats, and scientific concepts. It is a form of visual storytelling in the history of art and entertainment.

Low-code GUIs, no.1Goran Mahovlić

How to use use Envox EEZ Studio for fancy platform independent LVGL GUIs. The EEZ Studio is an open source cross-platform modular visual low-code development tool and SCPI controller for EEZ BB3 T&M chassis and EEZ H24005 programmable power supply and other T&M devices that support SCPI from manufacturers such as Keysight, Rigol, Siglent, etc. With new features we can build some fancy GUIs that are platform independent. In this workshop Goran will show us a host to set up EEZ Studio and create some simple GUI.

Foraging WalkVito Menjak

In this walk we will explore together common plants for survival food or DIY household chemicals. What is foraging? Foraging is the act of gathering useful plants as wild food or its use for creating colors, soaps, detergents, etc. For sure it gained far greater popularity in recent years, for our distant ancestors, hunters and gatherers, foraging would simply have been a way of life – a necessity in fact.
