Come join us for an Intro to Arduino class on Sunday, Aug 21! Our ever-popular Arduino class is back for another round. Learn how to use the Arduino microcontroller to control LEDs, light sensors, buzzers, and more, including how to wire up your own circuits and how to program it using the Arduino IDE. No previous electronics  experience is required!

We still have some tickets left for our DIY Musical Instruments class on Saturday!

Turn almost anything into a musical instrument with Teensy, an inexpensive Arduino-compatible microcontroller. The Teensy 3.2 has a bunch of touch sensors and analog and digital inputs, and it can plug into almost any music software through USB MIDI. teensy instruments

In this class, we’ll stick touch pads on any objects to make them into keyboards, drum controllers, or trigger pads. No coding or soldering experience is needed, but you’ll have the opportunity to do either or both if you like. Bring an object you’d like to instrumentify! And hurry up and buy your ticket.

Pick up those basic sewing skills you’ve always wanted in this total beginner class! We’ll thread needles, tie knots, sew buttons, and practice basic stitches used for clothing alteration and repair. You’ll walk away with a mix of hand and machine techniques you can use to patch ripped jeans, hem something that’s too-long, make your own curtains, and generally gain agency over your textile world.

Grab your ticket now, and we’ll see you on Saturday!

We still have a bit of room left in our Kokedama Make-Along for this Sunday!

This is not your typical craft class.  Make-Along is a self-guided craft workshop where participants learn new skills, explore new materials and make great things!  In this session we’ll be exploring how to make lovely floating plant planets known as kokedamas, or moss balls, or awesome things you totally want to learn how to make.

Buy your ticket, and we’ll see you on Sunday!

We still have a few tickets left for our Intro to Arduino class this Sunday. Who’s going to grab them?

Our Arduino intro is a 3-hour whirlwind tour, including hands-on lessons on how to use light sensors, blink LEDs, and make buzzers buzz! No prior hardware or electronics experience is required, though some basic programming experience (familiarity with for loops, variables, and functions) is helpful.
