This course is a continuation of our Intro. to Copper Foil Panels Class. It takes the basic skills learned in the construction of small panels, and incorporates that into constructing a larger project. The cutting, grinding, foiling, and soldering skills learned will be expanded upon to construct a higher level panel. This course will be limited to 5 – 6 students only due to the area needed for the larger projects.
