      Circuit Bending Workshop 101: Presented by Foxy & Company and Sly Grog Lounge

      Foxy and Company and Sly Grog Lounge are presenting their first Electronic Skills Class:  Circuit Bending 101, February 13th.  Colston Byrd, member of the heavily circuit bent band, Battery Powered Hooker Boots will be teaching you how to turn old electronic learning toys for children into relevant and amazing soundscape machines that are completely unique and impossible to replicate. Our goal is for you to leave with the  knowledge of how to create/recycle your own electronic instruments out of discarded obsolete technology, and how to do it affordably!  And...Of coarse you will leave the class with a new instrument that you made! There are 11 slots for this workshop.  Circuit Bending 101 is $25 and the class will supply you with the skills you'll need to make one circuit bent toy with multiple modifications, depending on your toy.  These may include Pitch knob, battery starve knob, 1/4" audio out, glitch switches, LEDs, low pass filters, distortions, etc. The price of the workshop will include a starter kit with enough switches, knobs and gear to make a solid bent toy, and extra gear for future projects will be available for purchase at location.  Please bring these tools if you have them: Electronic Toy to modify, - pre 1992 works best, search at Goodwills or moms basement. Foxy will supply extra toys just incase yours breaks, or is unbendable. Please make sure it works already. If you have more than one bring them both  Batteries for your toy - Can't make a toy turn on without batteries! 1 or more Ethernet Cable -  Will be stripped for wires, as it is a very critical tool to learn circuit bending. $1 at goodwill. Soldering Iron - if you have one it will make the class move much quicker.
