Jim writes in with some great news for Portland Makers, a new TechShop! –
TechShop is an open workshop space that provides its members with access to many tools and machines, and a place that they can just hang out and work on their projects. TechShop also offers lots of short, inexpensive classes on all the tools and equipment to members and non-members. Most importantly, TechShop is a full-time community for Makers.
TechShop is opening 9 locations, including one in Portland, Oregon, this summer. TechShop’s founder Jim Newton and TechShop Portland partner Denney Cole invite all Portland area Makers to come to the TechShop Portland Community Meet-Up Party on Tuesday, February 12 at 7 PM. You’ll have the chance to talk about what you want to see at the Portland TechShop facility, and find out what their plans are during an open Q/A session. Pizza and soft drinks will be provided by TechShop, and there will be a no-host bar.
If you can attend, TechShop asks that you RSVP at the TechShop Portland Web Site. If you have friends, relatives or know of clubs or groups that you think would like to know about TechShop Portland, please invite them to come to this event by forwarding this message to them along with the RSVP link. All Portland Makers are welcome!
