Concepts and Coffee at TechShop Detroit

Join TechShop Detroit on April 12, 2014 at 12:00 pm for an exciting afternoon of sharing!  Enjoy a Town Hall Meeting with TechShop CEO Mark Hatch, TechShop member project presentations, and lunch on the house! As always, it’s entirely free and open to the public.

This Month:

Steve Frey  –  Open Casket Bar and Grill:
Caskets don’t have to be all doom and gloom, this one is the life of the party!  The Open Casket Bar and Grill is a combination outdoor grill and beverage cooler built into a real casket.  In his presentation, Steve will go through the logic and process of how he took a final resting place and transformed it into a venue for tailgating parties from beyond the grave.

Luciano Golia  –  Learn with a Luthier:
Why are stringed instruments so different than other instruments?  How does coming from a culturally and historically rich culture in Italy shape decisions and influence considerations as a maker?  Find answers to these questions in a conversation with Master Luthier, Luciano Golia, about how wood and business can be used together to build an international market in instruments.

Stay for the Town Hall Meeting at 1:00 pm on Saturday, April 12 for an in-person information session hosted by TechShop CEO Mark Hatch,and learn how you can become a part of TechShop's mission to democratize access to the tools of innovation!

Find out how you can participate in the growth of TechShop (we are currently offering our Series B Preferred stock for sale to accredited investors), meet with Mark, and discuss some of the many exciting things happening in the Maker Movement around the country.

      Thanks Addie! I designed the current website, and I'm working with a company called MammothReach to build the full ecommerce site now.

    Thanks everyone for your feedback and support! If you're not in the market for a new watch, I added a black "Canvas Watch Co." T-shirt with a pledge of $25. Please help support the brand!

    Great presentations and was very informative about the direction that TechShop is going. As always it was also a pleasure getting to talk to other dream builders.
