Where: the space (Elzenstraat 4A)

Adience: Anyone who is interested

Food: Workshop starts at 19:00. If there is sufficient interest, food will be ordered to be delivered at 18:00. Deadline for food ordering is 16:00.

Prerequisites: None. If you want you can bring a digital design (gerber) of a circuit board that you would like to make. I cannot guanrantee that we have time to make all.

Topic: DIY printed circuit board fabrication. I have recently spent some time to develop the procedure to make printed circuit boards at home. This evening I will walk you through the steps involved. It will be a bit like an interactive walk-through.

If other people are more experienced with etching (or even completely different methods of pcb fabricarion) I would love to experiment with that as well during the workshop. Maybe we can compare results/pros/cons.
