MAKESHOP: Soldering


October 21, 2018

MAKESHOP is getting spooky this month as we celebrate the theme of Monsters! Join us as we make monsters come to life with a variety of projects both frightful and fun!

Today we'll be creating monsters out of steel wire, by soldering the parts together. Design and create shapes and sculptures out of wire, and then attach the pieces together by soldering them, or sticking them together using special melted metal. Can you create something flat? What about something 3D? What shapes are you going to make? 

Please note: the process of soldering requires the use of very hot tools. All ages are welcome to learn and try different parts of the process, but everybody (including adults!) will be required to follow simple safety guidelines while working with or near these tools.
