Jewelry Classes This Week at CMS!

Makers,

This week you have two chances to develop your jewelry skills at CMS! 

Tonight, start to Learn to Set a Simple Stone & Wednesday, Make A Silver Ring!

In Learn to Set A Simple Stone, you’ll be given a stone cabochon and silver sheet to create a bezel to set it in!  The instructor will guide you through creating a simple design, how to create your bezel, and finally how to turn it into either a simple pendant or add it to a silver ring if you’ve taken the ring class!  You’ll learn a fun and essential skill to jewelry making: how to set a stone! Only One Space Remains!

In Make A Silver Ring, you’ll learn the basics of silver-smithing while you make a simple silver ring! The instructor will guide you through various options for how to embellish your band, the shape of which you will get to choose.  You’ll try soldering and learn how to polish your finished product into a beautiful ring! No experience necessary. All materials will be provided, and $5 materials fee is included in the registration cost. Only Two Spaces Remain!

Other Upcoming Events

3D Print Club

Every Tuesday, 6 PM

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. Bring your own laptop or make use of the (first come-first-serve) Makerspace laptops loaded with Fusion 360.

Intro to Arduino

Monday, November 11th, 6 – 8:30 PM

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!

12 and up. Under 12 are welcome with an adult partner or if they’ve been approved by the instructor.

Class fee includes one REXQualis Arduino UNO R3 Project Basic Starter Kit to take home after the class to continue making projects!

Make A Bat House

Tuesday, November 12th, 5:30 – 8:30 PM

It’s that time of year! Brown Bats begin to look for a winter residence, often seen squeezing through and into cracks, nooks and crannies in our homes. These beneficial mammals will consume hundreds of mosquitoes a day all they need is a suitable place to winter over.  Join us for this introductory woodworking class as we build bat houses and finish them with personal touches. Simple woodworking tools will be utilized to construct a ready to hang bat house.  

Intro to 3D Printing

Wednesday, November 13th, 6:30 – 8:30 PM

Intro to 3D Printing is for anyone that has zero to little experience with 3D Printing.  We will provide an overview of 3D printers and the printing process – covering everything from the way 3D printers are built through the ways we use them to create objects. In this beginner level class, we will discuss different methods of 3D printing and cover the fundamental steps for designing and printing models. Participants will get to know how the MakerSpace’s printers – the LulzBot Taz 6 and Lulzbot Mini – work, and how to use them safely. Following the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to sign-up for certification sessions on these machines, so that they can use them on their own at the CMS.

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