Create Entwined 2.0 LED Patterns at the San Francisco Golden Gate Park

Sunday, December 19th @ 11:00AM (PST)

The Entwined installation is back to enjoy until February 1, 2022 and CODAME is excited to run another LED workshop with Colin Hunt to transform again the Golden Gate Park into an enchanted forest of otherworldly shapes and ever-changing light.

Donations are welcome. Get your tickets here.

Entwined is an installation by Charles Gadeken composed of 2000 LED lights decorating large metal trees and shrubs. Learn how to build patterns for this installation so that your signature style can be on display for all of San Francisco to enjoy!

Create a whimsical wonderland where visitors can explore twisting paths, colorful trees to sit under, large flowering clusters to run around and admire, and constantly changing vistas of light and magic. Inspired by nature, this interactive art installation will connect and enchant visitors of all ages.
