The Workshops


In our three different categories of workshops you can learn from the basics of 3D printers to assembling (and keeping!) your very own, as well as introductions to robotics, physical computing and more -both in theory and in practice. The cost of each workshop varies depending on its complexity and duration. We can accommodate 3-8 people in a workshop according to demand, and some have been designed to be worked on independently or in pairs. You will find all relative info on each one below.

You will receive a Certificate of participation and successful completion for each of these workshops.



1. DIY 3D printer

Price: 460€ per pair (one printer)

Nr of hours: 201397689_10206427310149581_5996271340404206772_o

You get: the 3D printer you created 

The course is designed to dive you into 3D printers and 3D printing technologies. The participants will assemble a 3D printer from scratch and learn how to use it. Due to the amount of work expected during this workshop, it is necessary that each printer is assembled by two people, so make sure to bring a friend who is either interested in becoming a maker as well, or simply up for helping you out. 

The SmartRap (the model you will be working on) was designed by or team to quickly pave the path into 3D printing with few frills but also intuitive mechanical and electronic assembly.

Designers, architects, artists, mechanics and craftspeople, this workshop is for you! With 3D printing you can now give life to your prototypes within the comfort of your own space, depending solely on your own hands, and for minimal costs.

No previous knowledge of electronics or programming is required. We will be providing all material and direction necessary.


2. Piccolino

ARDUINO BASICSPrice: 140€ (for one or two people)

Nr of hours: 6

You get: the Piccolino you created 

Piccolo is a pocket sized open source CNC-bot. Using laser-cutting, off-the-shelf hardware and Arduino, you can make your own simple 3 axis robot. Attach a brush or pen to make a quick drawing robot, or extend Piccolo with sensors, custom toolheads, or by using multiple Piccolos together. Experiment with 2D or 3D digital fabrication at a small scale!

We have adapted this Open Source beauty to be controlled by an Arduino, hence becoming the Piccolino.

The workshop has been designed for one or two people to work on the same gadget, so it’s up to you whether you prefer to do it on your own or share the experience (and the cost) with a friend.


3. Binary Clock

Price: 120€ (for one or two people)

Nr of hours: 4

You get: the clock you created 

A binary clock is a clock that displays the time of day in a binary format. Originally, su11182063_1006970232661303_2932788453854670217_nch clocks showed each decimal digit of sexagesimal time as a binary value, but presently binary clocks also exist which display hours, minutes, and seconds as binary numbers. Most binary clocks are digital, although analog varieties exist. True binary clocks also exist, which indicate the time by successively halving the day, instead of using hours, minutes, or seconds. Similar clocks, based on Gray coded binary, also exist.

We have developed a kit where colors represent hours or minutes every second. In a slender tower-shaped format, this nice piece of hardware will let you impress your friends while allowing you to learn how to program a microcontroller using the Arduino IDE.

1. Basic arduino

Price: 40€ /person14090002

Nr of hours: 2

Getting started with physical computing and interactive DIY through the ARDUINO platform. Learn the basic principles of electronic and electricity as well as their programming to develop small projects. The workshop will make specific emphasis in the reuse and remix of code and electronics of other open-source projects.

Arduino is a microcontroller that can sense (see, hear, smell, touch, feel the light level, humidity, etc.) the physical environment and react at your will using different devices or even your computer. It’s intended for artists, designers, tinkerers and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Its flexibility and easy-to-use hardware and software make it ideal for fast electronics prototyping for interactive products or environments.

Arduino is an open-source platform that has grown a community of thousands of designers, researchers, artists, computer scientist, etc. that daily creates, develops and share their projects and knowledge. Join it!

Prior knowledge and experience: None


2. Remote sensing

Price: 60€ /person

Nr of hours: 2

This course is designed to introduce you to the world of Internet of Things (IoT) using Arduino as the controlling platform.iot A set of sensors (temperature, light and sound) and their physical principles will be introduced. Then, using the magic of the Radio Frequency, we will share in the web the data created.

Internet of Things is the next great thing everyone is talking about, and lots of Open Source projects are being added daily by the community…let’s make one!


Prior knowledge and experience: Basic Arduino




3D printing:PLA

Price: 75€ /person

Nr of hours: 4

yoda3dprinting_616Are you an industrial designer, jeweler, architect, engineer? During this workshop you will learn everything you need to know to get started designing your own 3D printable items, as well as some of the ways this technology is being put to use in the real world. You only need SketchUp, the knowledge from this workshop and a 3D printer (which you can rent in your daily life) and you can have a physical prototype of your product in only a few hours and for super low costs.

Getting to hold your own designs is now only a matter of a few steps, and we’ll teach them to you.

You will go home with your own 3Dprinted gift!
