From LEDs to LEDfantastic

LEDfantastic is a worker's co-op based in West Yorkshire, England. Founded by Dave, who has been playing with LEDs for many years, we sell our creations, as well the components needed for you to get in on the fun.

It all started a few years back, when Dave was playing with LEDs & making lights on a regular basis. No stranger to co-ops (or to setting up businesses), he set up LEDfantastic to sell his handiwork.

Flo got involved much later. On the way home from a stint traveling, unable to shift the growing uncertainty about what they'd do on returning home, they remembered meeting Dave at a Radical Routes gathering. (Radical Routes is a network of radical co-ops in the UK.) A rushed email from a Mongolian hostel turned into a relaxed conversation, and then into an apprenticeship.

As the founding member of LEDfantastic, Dave comes up with great ideas. He is also very good at building LED lights, imagining installations, and teaching. Consequently, Dave is also Flo's mentor, and is guiding them in the ways of the LED.

Flo, the newest recruit, is an apprentice. When not blogging, Twittering, and general internet-ing, you can usually find them soldering bits of wire and LEDs or studying electronics.

Being a worker's co-op means that everyone has an equal say in the business, both in the day-to-day running, and in bigger decisions. We hold meetings (along with Billy, the accountant, and Em, the ethical advisor) to discuss important issues, and work together closely to make the daily stuff happen.

Both Dave and Flo maintain the Etsy shop, so you might find either of us listing items, interacting with customers & the Etsy community, or down at the post office with your order. Say hi if you see us!
