Rockford MakerSpace Intro to Vinyl Cutting Workshop

Rockford MakerSpace

$10.00

This workshop will be a brief introduction to using the wide-format vinyl cutter at Rockford MakerSpace, and will include a very brief overview of vector-based drawing programs and the vinyl cutter hardware itself. The workshop should last about one to two hours, and is limited to 5 persons (not including the hosts, of course). The workshop fee includes the training and course materials, one square foot of vinyl material, and use of the vinyl cutter hardware and software during the workshop. Each attendee will be taking home one or more creations, either of their own design or chosen from many pre-existing designs available. Payment may be cash or PayPal. Note that Rockford MakerSpace membership is NOT required to use the vinyl cutter during this workshop, but may be required to do so outside of the workshop. Our shop entrance is in the alley between Mulberry and Jefferson just East of Church Street. Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/aPb2ACCMTFz . Just ring the doorbell when you arrive.

Intro To Electronics

Rockford MakerSpace

Want to learn how to read sensors, drive motors, and blink LEDs? Never programmed before but you’re interested in learning? Want to find out what the fuss over the Arduino microcontroller ecosystem is all about? This class is perfect for you! We will journey, step-by-step, through the basics of electronics through hands-on labs where you (the student) build breadboard circuits and program the embedded software to bring them alive. Cost is $10 for non-members, $5 for Rockford MakerSpace members.
