S O L D E R  M A S K

June 17th at Little Woods Gallery in Ames, attend the opening reception for Tibi Chelcea’s "PCB Drawings". The exhibition will show works from the series with the same name. All these works are manufactured as typical circuit boards, though, in this case, they function solely as art.

Then on Sunday, learn how Chelsea designs circuit board art objects and have a chance to make your own. The workshop is free. Bring your laptop. You’ll be provided with some starting templates and guidance on how to create your own circuit board drawing. After the workshop, if you wish, your designs can be fabricated and you’ll receive 5 circuit boards! More info here.
