Social Media 101

Makers,

The Claremont Makerspace and the Center for Women & Enterprise are excited to offer a Social Media 101 course tomorrow, Wednesday, January 16th, from 6 – 8 PM. This workshop will get you started in using Facebook for business, which remains the number one social media site that businesses MUST be using.  You’ll also learn enough about Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter to decide if any of these are right for you. You’ll learn how to create a Facebook Business Page and how to use it effectively to get noticed. PREREQUISITE: You must have experience using Facebook with a personal page. Bring your own laptop or notebook if you like, but this is not required.  The material is perfect for small businesses, including craft and hobby businesses, and creatives who want to market their art.  This workshop is open to anyone.

To register, please go here.

Tonight, we have both 3D Print Club & Red River’s Home PC/ Small Business PC tune-up. To sign up for these classes, please follow the links below.

This Weekend’s Classes & New January Classes

Makers,

This weekend we have three classes at The Claremont Makerspace: Make An LED Hourglass, Fiber Arts Orientation & Quilting Machine Training.  Both fiber arts classes are excellent ways to get familiar with our textile equipment.  The LED Hourglass project uses 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. Family pairs (adult / child aged 10+) assembling an hourglass together are welcome. Note that your child will be working with a hot soldering iron. To register for these classes, follow the links below.

We have just added a swath of new classes in January including Intro to MIG Welding, Laser 101, Messin’ Around with Object Oriented Programming, Make A Votive Candle Holder and Intro to 3D Printing. See our full class listings for more information on these.

As a reminder, we are currently conducting a survey regarding our classes. If you have not had a chance yet, please click the following link to fill out our short survey:

3D Print Club Tonight & Weekend Classes

Makers,

Tonight – Join us for 3D PRINT CLUB! Every week, we’ll get together and participate in a freestyle design session. In a freestyle, participants simply design what they want to. There will also be various design challenges each week if you’re looking for inspiration, and an instructor will be present to offer advice and otherwise help troubleshoot as you create and print designs. Instructor-supported software (and software available on the Makerspace computers) includes Tinkercad and Fusion 360. If you’re an experienced 3D designer, bring your laptop and favorite design software! We’ll also spend time cleaning up our prints and discussing what goes into making the best print possible. This event runs as a 3 month session. At the end of each session we’ll collect our favorite and best prints and have an open showing.

Home PC & Small Business PC Tune Up Presented by Red River

Makers,

Do you ever have computer challenges at home or your small business? Does your 1 year old laptop run so slow you think you need a new one? Would you like help to optimize your PC and learn industry best practices? Then join this class sponsored by the IT professionals from Red River. In this interactive class you will learn ways to assess your laptop performance issues, identify tools to help monitor your laptop, and learn best practices of PC management used in the industry. This is a 2 hour interactive session. Bring your laptops so you can troubleshoot your own device. If you don’t have a Windows Laptop you can follow along with us on the screen or sit with others as they work on their PC. At the end of the session we will give a troubleshooting reference so you can tune your PC next time from home.
This event is presented by Red River Computer Company & The Claremont Makerspace. The workshop will happen on Tuesday, January 15th from 6 – 8 PM.
