Ptarmigan is no longer operating in Helsinki.

Ptarmigan existed as a project space in Vallila from 2009-2011 and a mobile curatorial/creative platform until 2014. We no longer exist as an organised collective, but this website will continue to serve as an archive of the activities produced as/at Ptarmigan during these years.


Hobielektroonikaring "Elektron"

Hobielektroonikaring "Elektron" is a regular working group for DIY hardware enthusiasts.  Everyone is welcome to participate if you are interested in physical computing, open-source hardware hacking and related topics.  The Arduino technology is particularly focused on.

Elektron will meet at least once a month, in a format that is a working group, workshop, and learning environment.  Everyone is welcome; lack of previous experience is not an obstacle. However, if you have any prior experience, then please share it with the others!

Bring your laptop and anything else you might want to work on.  We will get some Arduino hardware, breadboards, and other items and have them available for sale to participants.
