Two separate one day workshops:
Saturday June 6th 10am – 5pm
Sunday June 7th 10am – 5pm

My name is Daniel Connell, I’m a renewable energy and open source technology designer. For the last six years I’ve been working on setting up collaborative project spaces and giving practical making workshops in Australasia, India, and Europe.
I’ll be showing you how to build a simple, low cost vertical axis wind turbine using easily sourced local recycled materials. It’s an easy process, no previous experience is necessary.
The turbine is powerful, rooftop-scale, sturdy, safe, quiet, and efficient. Information will also be provided on how to mount the turbine, and attach an alternator/generator for producing electricity, or pump for irrigation, airconditioning, refrigeration, etc.

The cost is £80 per person / £140 for two, with a 10% discount for students, retirees, and the unwaged.
There are only 12 places available, so booking is essential.

The day will also include a presentation and discussion on off-grid living, low-tech alternative infrastructure, open source hardware, and my recent building project through India.

All tools and materials are provided. We will be making one three-vane turbine per workshop, which will then be donated to a local community project.

Registration is essential as places are limited. Please contact windworkshop@gmail.com
