Women’s Metal Art Collaborative

Makers,

Art you interested in metal art? Join a group of like minded women who are experimenting with scrap and sheet metal to make art projects. The goal of the group is to learn from each other and have fun creating. CMS has a studio full of tools to cut, shape, bend and weld metal into your creation. 

We generally meet on Fridays at 10am to work on our projects. Come see what we are working on and consider a membership and join the fun!

No experience necessary, CMS offers classes in all you need to get started.

Other Upcoming Events

Intro to Arduino

February 7th, 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 or a ELEGOO UNO Project Basic Starter Kit to take home after the class to continue making projects!

Laptops will be provided. Familiarity with Windows is strongly suggested. Non-members should bring a USB drive if they wish to save any work done in class. Please contact electronics@claremontmakerspace.org about the possibility of bringing your own laptop.
