College of Lockpicking at Dallas Makerspace

 

 

 

 

You can pick your friends. 
You can pick your beer. 
But can you pick... a Lock?

Join us on Sunday, May 11th, from 4-6pm at Dallas Makerspace as we embark on an ancient mechanical adventure to explore the inner workings of a modern lock, first developed by the Mesopotamians and Egyptians over 4000 years ago. Led by lockpickers Jamie Schwettmann and a Special Guest, this workshop will cover - soup to nuts - everything you need to know about how common locks work... and how to pick them open.

Whether you're a complete novice curious to find out what pin-tumbler really means, a homeowner protecting your family's treasures, or a veteran lockpicker with questions about advanced locks and techniques, this event is for you! With 2 solid hours of history, mechanical diagrams ("lock pr0n"), and hands-on lockpicking instruction... first we'll open your minds, and then we'll open some locks!

To properly learn this ancient art, you will need the proper tools. By registering for a lockpick set along with your workshop ticket, this reserves – all for you – a brand-new College of Lockpicking 10-piece Custom Lockpick Set made entirely in the USA, hand-picked by College of Lockpicking faculty to maximize utility for beginners and locksport enthusiasts alike, and offered for only $30. And of course, you get to take it home for practice after the event. :)

If you already have some picks you're itching to practice with, you can bring them along and your workshop cost is only $30!

BONUS: Dallas Makerspace members get $15 off a workshop seat ticket! (Check out the member mailing list to get the discount code!)

SUPER BONUS: 25% of every workshop ticket will be donated directly to Dallas Makerspace to support this and other other awesome events!

See ya there!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
