Workshop Weekend is something like Maker Faire gone deep.
One- to six-hour long workshops on things like taste hacking, Arduino, wearable electronics, liquid nitrogen ice cream, sugar skull making, and more are programmed over a weekend.
The next one is this coming Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 12-13, in Oakland. What is really cool is that a flat $40 admission gets you as many workshops as you can handle. They have family discounts for kids and parents wanting to workshop together.
And—special for MAKE readers—if you use discount code MAKERS1013, you’ll get a sweet discount. Register and select workshops online at http://workshopweekend.net/oakland/catalog
