Make A Recycled Bag at CMS!


Thank you to all that joined us for Sustainability & The Art of Living Well this past Saturday. We had some lively discussions, enjoyed some excellent speakers and learned about resources within our community. Thank you to CMS member & past Artist In Residence, Allison Zito, for organizing such a fun event. We’d also like to thank all of the presenters, supporters and sponsors. For more information, check out this article from The Eagle Times.

Upcoming Events

Tomorrow! Join us for Make A Recycled Bag. Learn to make a tough yet pretty grocery tote from recycled grain feed bags.  Choice of pictures and colors available. Do you love Horses? Pigs? Dogs? Purple? Pink? Many choices! And environmentally friendly. Some sewing knowledge is strongly encouraged for this relatively simple project.

Also, tomorrow is our weekly 3D Print Club!

On Thursday, join us for Intro to Arduino. This class is truly designed with the beginner in mind and serves as a great introduction to the world of physical computing! It is for anyone who has never played around with Arduino before and those who have played around a little bit but aren’t entirely sure about how the basics work. We’ll blink some lights, turn some motors, read some sensors and make a little noise. We’ll touch on some very basic programming and prototyping concepts as well!

And, on Sunday, come learn how to Make An LED Hourglass. Plenty of parts means plenty of soldering practice. Using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as grains of “sand” to simulate the movement of the hourglass, the upper “sand” trickles down one by one, piling up at the bottom. Flip the hourglass over and it starts all over again. Family pairs (adult / child aged 10+) assembling an hourglass together are welcome. Note that your child will be working with a hot soldering iron.

We recently added many classes through the month.
