Other Upcoming Events

Close Up Focus On Flowers

Tuesday, October 8th, 5:30 – 8:30 PM

We will take a close look at the beauty of flowers. Flowers have all the promise of new life, all the color, fragrance and forms of attraction. The stamen, the pistil, the petals all attract the butterflies and the bees and provide the dawn of a new generation. Bring your own flowers or paint from those provided. We will sketch out our ideas and then use acrylics to paint on canvas. All art supplies are provided. Bring a smock or come dressed to paint.

3D Print Club

Join us for 3D PRINT CLUB! Every week, we’ll get together and participate in an open design session. This event is all about self-directed learning and hanging out with other people working on 3D designs or prints.

Intro to CNC Routing

Tuesday, October 15th, 6:00 – 9:00 PM

Computer numerical controlled (CNC) routers rock. They’re cutting machines used for cutting various hard materials (wood, aluminum, foam, plastics, etc) and are useful for a huge variety of creative applications. Need to cut (or carve) a complex or unique shape? Lots of them? This machine will be your friend!

Intro to CNC Routing will provide an overview of CNC routing with a ShopBot CNC machine – covering safety procedures and basic setup and operation of the ShopBot CNC system, as well as the software used to run this tool. We will walk through the process of cutting out a pre-programed design and end with parts ready to assemble!

Participants of this workshop will have the opportunity to sign up for a follow certification session. Upon successfully passing this certification test, these Members will be allowed to use the ShopBot on their own.

We’ve got even more classes/events on the calendar, so check out the full line up HERE.
