LevelUp your skills and learn to solder in 2 hours!

This workshop is designed as an introduction to soldering. You will learn the essentials of soldering and how to build and repair your own electronic circuit boards.

This 2-hour workshop will be run in person with hands on exercises to learn as you go. By the end of the session, you will have created your own take-home electronics kit and you’ll be soldering like a pro!

Soldering is a valuable skill, at the heart of many hardware projects – easy to learn, and an effective way to join metals, particularly in electronics. A hacking toolkit essential in our opinion!
