Holography Workshops 2015


3D HOLOGRAM: Antioch Chalice from futuretech on GodTube.

A hologram looks like the real object is on display.
But there is no object at all. It is a 3D holographic image.

Still going strong after 32 years of holography:
Exhibiting at a 2014 Maker Faire in Scranton, PA

2015 is 32 YEARS of my famous holography workshops!

HOLOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS: Not everyone needs a holography workshop. Some people can just start on their own. Others, however, prefer to work hand in hand with an experienced instructor. After 32 years, I'm beginning to wind things down. That being said, I will continue to offer a 2 hour introductory lecture / workshop at a very reasonable fee to those interested. This workshop is geared for those curious about holography and making their own holograms. You'll learn a little history of holography, get to view historical holograms and memorabilia, then we'll head down into the lab for a demonstration on making them. All of my workshops include a reference CDROM filled with holography instructional information (how to make holograms; darkroom chemistry formulas; computer-generated holograms; color holography; and more). Class / lab size is limited to one to four students. An adult must attend with any student under 18 years of age, however there is no additional fee. Contact me for more information on when the next class will take place (see telephone and email link below).

About My Work in Holography:

My past clients include: The Smithsonian Institution, Wash. D.C. (The Hirshhorn Museum & Ripley Education Center); The Franklin Institute, Phila; Stevens Institute of Technology; Liberty Science Center, NJ; The Discovery Center of Science and Technology, PA; Lehigh University Physics Dept.; University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology; California Institute of Technology; Northampton Commmunity College; Lehigh-Carbon Community College; Allentown Art Museum; Rodale Press; WFMZ-TV; NASA / Northrop Grumman; Georgian Court University Physics Dept.; AT&T; Lucent Technologies; U.S. Navy; Fuji Film Corp.; Dupont; the Urban Systemic Initiative (NSF); and many elementary, middle and high schools. National Science Foundation-funded programs; scouts; home school groups; corporate events; birthday parties; and teaching the first online class for holography, with America On Line, in 1995.
