denver maker meetup 300.jpg

Ever since the first TechShop opened in the San Francisco bay area, I’ve been dying for one in Downtown Denver. Well, my dreams have been answered – Club Workshop is a well-equipped public access workshop, where you can craft your projects using their machine tools, rapid prototyping machine, laser engraver/cutter, woodworking tools, and welding equipment. Naturally, they also offer classes so you can learn how to use these tools.

This maker-friendly spot will host the first meeting of the Denver Maker’s group, and I’ve been invited to be the guest speaker. I’ll give a presentation on the build process behind my Pong/Asteroids Watches and discuss some of my projects, including how to tinker with carbon fiber.

Date: Thursday, April 23th, 2009 – 7pm
Location: Club Workshop 999 Vallejo St. Denver 80204 (centrally located near I-25 & 8th Ave., on the East side)

    I, too, have been wanting the same Maker opportunities here; so tired of reading about everyone else having all the fun.

    Excellent!!

      Yeah, I’m interested in seeing what this guy has planned for the group. A group of us have stared up a hacker space locally and are developing our own group (denhac.org), so it will be great to hook up with some of the other people in the area doing the same.

        I’m looking forward to the denhac meetings, too. I just found out about them a few weeks ago & haven’t been able to make one yet. Looks like fun, and, depending on your interests, there will be more or less overlap with the maker meeting.
