Do you mess about with electronics projects? Does every project have a tangle of wires sitting on a breadboard, or a mass of blobbed solder on the back of some stripboard? Would you like your projects to look just a little bit more professional? If so, you need to be making your own printed circuit boards - in short, homebrew PCBs!
In this workshop, we'll take you from circuit schematics to laying out your PCB, to printing, transferring, and etching your designs onto copper board. You can bring along a ready-laid-out PCB design straight from the web (if you want to make something shared by another hackspace for example)
This workshop is for people with previous electronics experience looking to move beyond the basic prototyping stage. This is ideal for anyone who has built a project using breadboard or stripboard and wants to make a more permanent version using a PCB. All tools and equipment will be provided. Please don't wear your best clothes as it can get a bit messy!
When & Where
Build Brighton Makerspace
Build Brighton is a communal workshop and collective of over 100 makers who love to build stuff.
We’re part of a global network of makerspaces – places where people do creative projects, such as electronics, 3D printing, crafts and woodworking. Our main purpose is to provide tools and a space in which our members can gather, collaborate and learn from each other. People beaver away on their own projects, or take part in exciting group projects in a playful and friendly environment.
We are a not-for-profit community run entirely by volunteers. Our members pay a monthly subscription that goes towards paying for the workshop space and equipment for the group.
