We asked Bonnie and Widget what to do at craft night if you don’t have a project. Here’s their list…
You could do things that have nothing to do with projecting: sit on your own surfing the internet or playing farm games (Hi Mikael!), sit and talk to people, grab a book from the library, ask people about their projects, offer to help with projects, or offer to help clean (which is a great way to make us love you).
More traditional projects: you could spelunk in thingsgiving (our pool of electronics supplies and mysterious arcane objects, aka a treasure hunt) and see what you could make. You could learn to solder. You could knit, or learn to knit (we have yarns and needles on hand), you could grab scraps of fabric and play around with a sewing machine. You could paint your nails: we have lasercut nail art blocks, some of which are very geeky (ed: I love the one with circuits). Or you could video DJ on our projector.
You could draw – we love artists. Or try out the 3D printers (or help get one of them working again). Mill your own PCBs on the othermill. Or you could bring things that you want to fix, and fix them.
Craft nights are Mondays and Thursdays – check out our Participate page.
