You’ll be selecting and soldering the component parts to a pre-etched PCB (printed circuit board). After testing that your effects circuit works, you’ll fit it inside your own “stomp box” enclosure (for the more adventurous, you can even use our fully-fitted workshop to embed the electronics behind your scratchplate!)

Working from the classic Fuzz Face design, you’ll be able to blend different capacitor and resistors in your circuit, to create your own, unique, personal sound and tone. Help will be on hand to make and customise your own enclosure and we’ll be there to offer advice on electronic instruments in general.

To round off the day, everyone is invited to join in with a jamming session at the end, where you can try out your new effects pedals and show off your licks!

General Workshops

We run periodic public workshops on a variety of subjects, typically surrounding skill sharing by particular members.


Private workshops are often free for members - we typically rehearse new workshop content to members before the main event - but if you are a member and would a place on a public workshop please make it known to [email protected]

We use Eventbrite for booking workshops, please see our upcoming events page there for more information.

If would like to learn a specific skill related to engineering, design, electronics, or any other craft, please get in touch with [email protected] - we can often create a workshop to your needs, if there is sufficient demand.
