Recycled Electronics Jewelry Workshop, back by popular demand! Saturday December 5th 1:00-5:00

The Hacktory again offers its fun & unique Recycled Electronics Jewelry workshop on Saturday, December 5th from 1:00-5:00pm. Perfect timing for making cool retro-tech holiday gifts on a recession budget!

The Hacktory promotes the combining of art, technology & recycling–so we created the Recycled Electronic Jewelry Workshop. You can add beauty and interest to the world by reusing electronic components that would needlessly end up in our growing landfills. It’s great fun and sparks creativity. Previous workshops were sold out–everyone loved making and taking home their amazing creations!

You’ll learn basic jewelry-making skills including design ideas, basic soldering and assembly skills, and how to choose materials for creating your own jewelry and small sculpture. You’ll also learn fun stuff about new & old electronic parts so you can talk about your creations. No experience necessary, all ages 8 and up.

Cost to participate is only $20, which includes all supplies and materials including basic jewelry parts, supplies, and a great selection of awesome-looking retro electronic components for your creations. You’ll have enough time to make several pieces to take home for yourself or for gifts.

  1. What a great idea!! As a woman who owns a electronics recycling company I tend to look at the things that come thru my business a bit differently. I started making jewelry from the endless supply of really neat things from the elctronics for only myself and have now branched out to actually having my jewelry in local art galleries. It never occured to me to try to put together a class and teach how to put together these fun funky creations!! Would you be willing to share with me your experience on putting together your class, advise on the best way to do it and such?

    Thanks for your time!!
