Inspired by Maker Faire this past weekend? Workshop Weekend, happening in locations around the Bay Area this coming Saturday and Sunday, will turn that enthusiasm into hands-on education and real-life making. An amazing range of short (2-4 hour) introductory workshops will take you from knowing nothing to welding, making pens, casting glass or metal, building and programming an Arduino, sewing soft circuits, distilling spirits, making cheese, fire-eating, and many other rewarding skills. Go for it!
