Event description

Description

Design and build your own durable, renewable, and beautiful bamboo amplifier.


Just plug and play - no pairing, no cables, no batteries.

The natural resonance of the hollow bamboo speaker body amplifies sound.

This unique property makes bamboo an ideal material for making an all-natural, unpowered phone amplifier.

You are a part of the creation process of your amplifier from start to finish.

Under our expert guidance, you will build this amplifier, from scratch, to fit your phone and your style.


The process will take you about two hours from start to finish,

You will learn to use the following tools:

Drill,

chisel,

knife,

scraper,

sand paper,

spray lacquer.


You will also learn how to work with bamboo, without splitting it, and making use of the unique grain direction of the material.
