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.

Al, Leah, and John will be bringing a bit of Saskatoon Techworks to Calgary on September 12th and 13th for the Calgary Mini Maker Faire. Come visit our booth and see a few of our projects.
Albert held a T-Shirt Making workshop and, this time, used his vinyl cutter to cut heat-transfer material. (We have used laser-cut stencils in past workshops.) The workshop was primarily attended by SCRC members making team t-shirts for the upcoming Kilobots XXXI in September.
“Workshop went great! If anyone wants to post pics of their team shirts, please do! (We’re always looking for more website content.)
Thanks to Albert for putting it on!”
We held a soap-making workshop on July 23rd.
“If anyone’s curious, that’s about how much soap you get from ~a yogourt container of cheap canola oil + a bit of coconut oil. It still needs to finish curing for a few weeks. Despite the remaining lye content, I washed my hands with it this morning and it is quite lovely.
Awesome workshop last night! — with Minna Liang and Scott Walde.”
