Come play with electronics at Artisan's Asylum! Whether you're a newbie or an experienced hacker, there will be something for you at Circuit Hacking Night.

Feel free to bring your own projects to work on if you have them!
The proceeds of all sales and donations will go directly towards funding maintenance and improvements in the Electronics & Robotics lab of Artisan's Asylum: to buying new equipment, keeping consumables in stock, and towards general upkeep.
To learn how to solder, to work on your electronics projects, and to spend time with other hackers and makers.
