    Build Your Own, Custom, Playable Electric or Acoustic Guitar*
    Starting Aug 16, 2022 at Fab Lab ICC.

    *No experience building or playing necessary.


    View Flyer HERE




    From the earliest known public mention of an electrically enhanced guitar, appearing in Wichita, Kansas in October of 1932, to the news in 1940, that Les Paul created "The Log," a guitar whose strings and pickups were mounted on a guitar body carved from a solid block of wood, electric guitars have captivated every generation since.

    Over the years the great artists like Les Paul, Duane Eddy, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Slash, Van Halen and Yngwie Malmsteen have attracted legions of followers.

    Imagine the exhilaration experienced by Les Paul when he plugged in "The Log" and heard the sounds for the first time. You can experience the same exhilaration at Fab Lab ICC, by the end of the semester!

     For the first time, in this class, you can choose to build and keep either a real, custom, playable electric or acoustic guitar. No experience necessary and you don't have to know how to play. We have kits available that include everything you need. Check our online store for kit selections.

    In this class, you will learn:

    • Basic woodworking and wood finishing techniques
    • How electric guitars work
    • How guitar components are made
    • Guitar assembly and intonation

    The class takes place at Fab Lab ICC on Tuesdays from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM starting Aug 16 through Dec 6, 2022.

    This class is available either with or without college credit.

    Course fee:

    MAKER SPACE BOOT CAMP:

    How To Start a FAB LAB from Ground Zero

    September 13-15, 2022 in Independence, Kansas

    From our humble beginnings on October 1, 2014 in a rural southeastern Kansas town of less than 10,000 people some remarkable things have happen that, in addition to efforts by other community groups, are starting to help move the needle in revitalizing our area economy.

    Join us for 2 1/2 days to learn how you might create the entrepreneurial mindset and maker space in your community to greatly enhance your revitalization efforts. A Fab Lab or maker space can support entrepreneurial start-ups and small business development in many ways besides just the prototyping of new products.

    *Virtual option available.

    With the virtual option, campers will stay home or at work for the virtual portions of the camp on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Then at a later time, either individually or in small groups, campers come to the Lab for their Maker time. Click here to see what we call "enhanced" Zoom for the virtual sessions to make them much more interesting than the typical Zoom experience.

    Virtual content schedule:

    Mornings: Tue, Wed, 9:00 - 11:50; Thu, 9:00 - 12:30

    Maker time Lab experience:

    Afternoons: Tue and Wed, after lunch - 5:00

    Virtual campers will schedule time to come to the Lab in person at a later time for the maker portion of camp.

    Camp ends 12:30 PM Thursday with box lunch provided.
