Hackerspace Happenings for December 12

TV-B-Gone Soldering Class at Vancouver’s VHS
TV B Gone

Sick of TV?
Want to learn to solder?
Want to make a great stocking stuffer?
TV-B-Gone is a universal remote that will turn off any TV within 150 feet. I’ve got twenty kits for sale and I’m offering free soldering training for anyone who orders one. To streamline things in time for the holidays I’m holding a soldering course at the VHS Saturday, December 15th from 13:00-15:00. Get it for yourself or the maker in your life.

Sign up here, the cost is $25.

Make-a-Long Craft Night at NYC Resistor

Introducing Make-A-Long, a new monthly crafting event at NYCR. Make-A-Long is a self-guided craft workshop where participants learn new skills, explore new materials and make great things!

In this session we’ll explore the wonderful world of felting using carded wool (also known as wool roving). Using water or needles, wool roving can be manipulated to form a myriad of different shapes. Learning how to felt means you can make things like: felted soap, felted creatures, felted jewelry, felted ornaments and more!

Are you a beginner? Don’t worry! We’ll provide instructions and materials for a variety of projects. Facilitators will be available to help guide you through a project of your choice.

Are you a master? Bring a project, use our materials and hang out in a great space while doing what you love.

The event is from 5-8pm on December 15th. Sign up here; the cost is $20.
