TechShop Detroit is Turning One Year Old!

TechShop Detroit, your local open-access DIY workshop and prototyping studio, is having its 1-Year Anniversary Party Saturday June 1st. Custom WHEELS is the theme of the day! Bring your homemade bike to show or favorite bike to tune-up and customize.  Dust off the classic car that's been hibernating in the garage all winter.  Been working on something weirder than that?Does it have wheels?  Maybe it doesn’t? Bring it over!

Displays, Demos, and Performances
Have a ball riding along with cycle cars, a U of M Dearborn Formula SAE team racer, the Redford Township Unicycle Club, the Thunderdrome! crew and their gonzo moped racing squad and more.

Bike Build Competition
Assemble a team and register to build a Star Wars themed bike during the month of May to show and race on the TechShop track at the party.  Registered teams that pull-in on event day will automatically win 1 month of free Membership and 1 free Class (limit 5 packages per team).  Sign your team up here and compete for big prizes!

This Market features work by local award-winning artisans. Works range from handblown glass to doodles. In the spirit of building the DIY/Maker’s Community, the Maker’s Market will also include demonstrations!

    I am a new member since 6/4. My passion and occupation has been R&D and have a long list of projects behind me. Though my form of escapism is woodturning.
