We are still in the process of developing a workable format. Your participation and feedback has been very helpful! The last meeting where we tried to build a small but very complicated mallet in two hours...maybe not the best way to unwind after work. However we had glimmering moments of discussion, individuals applying their own creative thinking style, and some exposure to new tools. You had better believe the shop was a whir of activity and mechanical noises.
For this upcoming meetup we are thinking of dividing the time into three segments. After 15 minutes of chatting and getting to know each other, we will hold a technical discussion, followed by group show and tell, and finally a skills demonstration. The more experienced members will have a sort of public technical discussion about ther current projects, business/client experiences, and present challenges. For an hour after that we will have an open discussion about current projects, past work, and new ambitions. Everyone is encouraged to bring in pieces they have made, works in progress, or clippings from a magazine if you haven't yet made anything - any prop which helps you to share your ideas. The skills demonstration is yet to be determined, waiting on your feedback. I would like to keep it light and simple.
Looking forward to hearing from you~
