It has been a while, but summer is over, the leaves are falling, and people are starting to think about Christmas presents. How about making your gifts this year? We are hosting a couple workshops to help you out with that:
Soap Making. Learn to make your own soap. Cold process soap takes a bit of time to cure, but if you make it on November 16th it should be ready to use by Christmas.
Laser Cut Decorations (link to come). Learn to use the laser cutter at Saskatoon TechWorks. And, make decorations at the same time! Use them yourself, or give them away.
Are you interested in learning about the availability of Makerspaces (with new technologies for you to use) in Saskatoon? Well…
I’m very excited to invite you to an exciting (free) program the the Main library (Theatre) on March 30th at 6 pm.
At 6 pm in the Meeting Room, there will be several local exhibitors available to demonstrate the new technology and Makerspace available locally. Following that, we will screen a film called “Maker”. The trailer is here:
Rylan and Erik delivered the new-to-us lathe at 4AM this morning. Since this is now probably our most dangerous piece of equipment, we are going to be strict about only allowing trained people to use it. If you want to be in the first group of trained people, sign up at: https://www.picatic.com/event14782110102438
NOTE: This is a two day course, two hours each day, for a total of four hours.
Sign up now for our soap making workshop coming up on November 24th.
Learn to make soap at Saskatoon Techworks. ALL required materials will be supplied for this workshop, and you will go home with uncured soap that can be cut into about nine generous-sized bars of Hand-Crafted Natural Soap.
You will learn about the chemical reaction that takes place when making soap.
You will learn how to develop your own recipes and to evaluate existing recipes.
You will learn how to measure and combine the ingredients.
