Twin State Innovation – Tomorrow

Makers,

Join us for Twin State Innovation, Tuesday, September 8th from 8 – 9 am. Jonathan and Abby from Winter Street Farm will be presenting this month. This is a new farm to Claremont with some incredible ideas and energy. Like past months – they’ll share their story, talk about their vision, and discuss the challenges they face and then have plenty of time for questions and conversations.

Everyone plays a role in launching new ideas, supporting existing businesses, and growing entrepreneurship in the region. During these events, a local entrepreneur will discuss their business and an open discussion will follow.  Please click here to find the connection information for this virtual meeting.

 

Upcoming CMS Virtual Events!

Make a Basic Key Fob (Virtual Class)

Thursday, September 25th, 6 – 7 PM

Need a simple project & stress reliever? Join us virtually to make a basic key fob that fits over your wrist and never lose your keys again.  This class will include a short demo on the Cricut Maker.

Please register and click the above link to review the supply list for this class.

We are looking to bring more virtual learning opportunities to the Claremont Makerspace community. In the past month we have offered art, robotics, 3D printing, textiles, business and STEM classes.  We have recently pivoted to virtual learning during this time of social distancing and have been wonderfully surprised by the response from the community. We are paying virtual instructors $36 per class hour.  Would you like to share your skill or interest to an enthusiastic audience? Please email brendan@claremontmakerspace.org to learn how.
