Join us for an exciting and educational Beginner Soldering Workshop! This workshop is designed for those who are new to the world of soldering and want to learn the basics. Whether you’re a DIY enthusiast, a maker, or simply curious about soldering, this workshop is perfect for you.
In this class, our experienced instructors will guide you through the process of soldering components onto a circuit board. You’ll learn about the different types of soldering tools, materials, and techniques. Our hands-on approach will give you the opportunity to practice what you’ve learned, so you can feel confident in your newly acquired skills.
You’ll start with the basics, such as how to properly use a soldering iron, and work your way up to soldering components onto a circuit board. You’ll leave this workshop with a fully functioning circuit of your own creation, a greater understanding of soldering, and a newfound sense of confidence.
Every January we combine our regular Open Social and our Birthday Party to create one big monster bash. What a better way to beat the post Christmas blues. There are strong rumors of cake and other goodies. So get in on the 28th and wish us a Happy Birthday. Doors will be open from 7pm and we have lots of free parking available.
The party is free to attend for both members and visitors alike. You can drop in for 10 minutes, or stay the whole night. Bring beer, food, gadgets!
If you’ve never been to our Social, you’ll find it a great alternative Saturday evening in town. Come in and look around. If you’ve never been in before, we’ll give you the grand tour of the space. Talk to members and visitors about projects or things you’d like to do. If you like what you see, ask about joining as a full member.
Weather and volunteer permitting, we might have our wood fired pizza oven going outside. Expect caint, ceol agus craic as usual. The space stays open until the last member is left……usually the small hours of Sunday morning
