Printed Circuit Boards
WhiteFeather participated in this workshop, given by Pipo Pierre-Louis & Grégory Perrin at Eastern Bloc on 13 August 2016. This 9-hour workshop covered different methods of homemade fabrication of printed circuit boards, including practicing making printed circuit boards with readily available tools, such as copper board, and ferric chloride etching solution with PnP paper transfer. The handmade circuit boards were used to build a DIY electronic mini-theremin.
