|1. Advanced Joinery - 5 person capacity - $750
This course looks at developing moderate joinery skills through making a jig that can be used to maximise student time in construction of their own projects. The jig made of F27 Hardwood, is effectively a false work top that fits into standard workbenches vices (project size 1500x500). Construction skills involve Dovetailing, Mortising and a variation on Breadboard Ends. Participants will receive KDHW, Tail Vice, Veritas Dogs and a specialist chisel.
2. Arduino for Beginners - $450
Teaching Arduino requires a working knowledge of:
- coding in C++, and;
- basic electronics
This course focuses on both of these and delivers the knowledge required to deliver stage 4 projects with confidence.
Note: Participants will need to supply
- a laptop with wireless access and
- arduino IDE installed.
- Note that DET laptops must be pre-loaded with this software AND all drivers.
- An old (eg:2008 DET) laptop is perfectly OK. Linux loaded on this machine will run arduino with all drivers, and revive a machine that is no longer supported by the DET. (This must be done prior to arrival.)
Note: please bring your own PPE if you are doing workshop activities, this includes:
- Safety glasses
- Ear muffs
- Solid shoes
- Appropriate workshop clothing
- If you have long hair - it must be tied back
