The workshop is full. Thank you! 

Description: 

The amplification of sound combines magnetism, electricity, and the resonant properties of physical materials. This workshop will explore this phenomenon with a DIY and lo-fi approach. Participants will create handmade microphones and speakers familiarizing themselves with magnetism and electricity as well as exploring how to use vegetables to color the sound source and use them as a membrane for speakers.

**An audio power amplifier (or power amp) is an electronic amplifier that reproduces low-power electronic audio signals such as the signal from radio receiver or electric guitar pickup at a level that is strong enough for driving (or powering) loudspeakers or headphones. 

**A loudspeaker (or loud-speaker or speaker) is an electroacoustic transducer which converts an electrical audio signal into a corresponding sound. 

**A microphone, colloquially nicknamed mic or mike is a transducer that converts sound into an electrical signal.
