Fabschool Kids 4: musical instruments

Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, Amsterdam

Make your own musical instrument!

Fabschool Kids is for curious children aged 10 to 12 who like to tinker or work with computers and electronics. This time we will be making very special musical instrumnets.

Curiosity, creativity and technology - that's what Fabschool Kids is all about. You learn by making and will be surprised by everything you are able to do. The workshop takes place around Fablab Amsterdam. This is a digital production place where everyone can turn simple ideas into prototypes, using e.g. a laser cutter, sticker cutter, sewing machine, shopbot or a soldering iron. The workshops are led by designers and artists who have extensive experience in working with children and young people.
