New date announced for an encore workshop on March 9th!
Are you a massive Proto-pasta fan? Do you want to see how filament is made first hand? How about designing your own filament? Sound too good to be true? Well, it's not! Join us for the Proto-pasta Experience!!!
The Proto-pasta Experience is a one-of-a-kind day at Protoplant where you'll hang out with the Proto-pasta team, get a tour, and participate in a filament-making workshop. Witness the science, art, and wizardly of filament first hand. Yes, you'll get to design your own filament and give filament-making a go!
