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:
