As part of Science Week, TOG will be hosting an afternoon soldering workshop with DIY circuit board demonstration.
This hands on workshop will cover various aspects of soldering; from the basic techniques of soldering, to soldering electronic components to make simple circuits, right up to manual techniques to solder surface mount chips.
This workshop is split into levels so we can work with you to increase your skills. We are ready to work with both absolute beginners and those who would like to move onto more advanced surface mount soldering.
The demonstration will cover the steps involved in DIY circuit board fabrication, showing the processes and the chemicals used to produce a circuit board at home.

We will be holding two electronic fashion workshops over the weekend of Innovation Dublin week. These workshops will be hosted in our space on Arran Quay on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of October from 2pm to 6pm.
There will be a €15 (€12 students/unwaged, €10 TOG members) participation fee to take part in the workshops. Non-members are welcome to participate in the workshops.
The participation fee includes a basic electroluminescent wire kit and an item of clothing from an Irish menswear fashion label which is a canvas for your creations. A range of sewing materials (including conductive wire), extra el wire, LilyPad’s and other electronic devices will be available for use during the workshop.
No experience of electronics or sewing is required, though it would help.
The number of places in each workshop will be limited to 12, so please reserve a place by posting a comment to this blog post, giving details of which workshop you would like to attend.
Participants and visitors must be at least 18 years of age. Continue reading “TOG does Electronic Fashion”
