Make:SF Sept 13th @ the Tech Shop

Hello Makers,

This month we are going back in time :) Or maybe the mini project we are doing is coming from  the past... Anyway this month we will be making chain mail

This is a fabulous mini-workshop for people who are into jewelry or armor!  We'll be making a small piece that you can use as a coaster, earrings, or the beginning of an epic armoring project for your Halloween costume.  Bring needle nose pliers as we'll be using 2 for each person who wants to experiment.  The work shop will be $10.

Our speakers this month are definitely in the present, or maybe even the future :) Eric and David will be speaking about the  OpenROV project. It is a really cool remotely controlled underwater bot that involves everything from Arduino and motor drivers, to some pretty cool mechanical engineering. Come learn about what it took to get the project going and how you can get involved. 

Also,  we want to see all the cool stuff you are doing! If you are working on a project and want to show it off or get help, email us and we will arrange for a demo.

This fun-for-all-ages event starts at 6:30pm. Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult. 

If you are working on a project and want to show it off or get help bring it in. We want to see the cool stuff you are doing :)

    I was an hour late, because of work. However, Malcolm was so non-nonjudgmental about it; if anything, super-welcoming, as usual. He's a patient teacher. Plus, other classmates are willing to help.

    In other words, this is a great group

    It was fun. I always wanted to try to make chain mail. It was easier than I thought. It's like knitting if you were a medieval man. The demos were cool too.

    Had a great time! It was very interesting, and I think a class at TechShop is the logical next step.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
