Knox Makers is a place for hackers, makers, crafters, artists, and mad engineers to play, work, teach, learn, and socialize: a hackerspace. Sharing workspace, tools, materials, and knowledge, we develop both group and solo projects.

Soldering is a fundamental skill for makers, hackers, and handyfolk alike, yet many find it intimidating and fiddly. Starting from the ground up, this hands-on workshop presents soldering as approachable and fun. Learn fundamental principles, techniques to save time and frustration, and which tools are worth buying. Additional topics include de-soldering, wire splicing, and electrical insulation.

Tools and consumables will be provided to allow practice and experimentation after the lecture. Got a failed soldering project or experiment? Bring it in and we'll try and fix it! Electronic hobby kits will be made available for purchase*, so bring cash if you want extra fun!

This workshop is suitable for makers with soldering experience ranging from "complete beginner" to "intermediate."

* All proceeds will be immediately donated to Knox Makers to help fund The Move.
