Elections for the next Board of Directors are coming up! Beginning today is the nomination period for prospective Directors. We are looking to fill three of our Board positions during this election (see the list of incumbents below).
We are an official 501(c)(3) and our current goals are to attract new members, interesting projects and exciting workshops to the new space. We need to build the community of makers and hackers that use our workshop. If you think you can help us achieve this very important objective, please consider running for the Board of Directors! A Director’s term is one year long.
Starting 2/23, All Hands Active will be opening at 2pm on Thursdays. Stop by and get a tour! Be sure to say “Hello” to our volunteer Henry. He’ll be staffing AHA on Thursday Afternoon.
Brian will continue on as the host of Thursday “Build Night”. Alex and Tyler will continue to staff Saturday.
Yesterday evening we opened a new section of the space setup as a classroom.
Thanks to everyone that helped make this happen. The space can be used immediately classes will start to be held on this side of the hall immediately. Cleanup and finishing work will continue over the next few weeks. Give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or feedback about the new space.
Our new electronics work bench and shelving is now available for use! This new area provides 6 sq ft of additional table space, more shelving and we’ve got a few more cabinets on the way. Thank you to everyone that helped make this possible!
Heads up! We will be closed on the 24th and 31st due to the holidays, but otherwise open to the public during our normal Thursday/Saturday schedule (see the right sidebar).
Stay awesome, stay warm, and we hope your New Year is filled with all sorts of wonderful things to learn and make.
We no longer will hold public hours on Friday evening. Our new public schedule will be Thursday 6-10P.M. and Saturday 2-6P.M.
On Thursday 11/10, we’ll open at 7 P.M.
This Friday (11/4) @ 7PM!
ALL HANDS ACTIVE PRESENTS: MOLDOVER
In this basic soldering workshop, Moldover will take you through the steps to build your own Light-Theremin CD Case. Even if you’ve never soldered before, this workshop will give you the confidence in two hours. If you do have experience you’ll learn how to solder better, and walk away with a fun and unique instrument, plus a copy of Moldover’s album.
No experience required
No equipment required: soldering stations & Light Theremin kits provided
This is an all ages, hands-on workshop
Cost: $35 for kit/materials
Can’t afford a kit, but seriously dedicated to learning? Talk to us!
Space is limited, please come early
After the workshop Moldover will give a presentation on the design of The Light-Theremin CD Case, and his other circuit-board artworks.
The Tor Project is having some hack days in Seattle, and Cryptoparty
Ann Arbor will be holding a hack day in solidarity!
Sunday October 2nd Cryptoparty members will be meeting up to
collectively learn about, work on, and experiment with tor and
everything tor-related. The goal is to explore things at a deeper and
more involved level than usually happens at the monthly cryptoparties,
which mostly cover the basics. This event is open to the public, as always! We’ll start at
1pm and run until people decide to leave.
We hope you’ll join us on October 2nd at All Hands Active and be sure to bring your computer(s)!
It’s time for the fall open house! Join us Saturday September 10th from 3-10pm at our new location 255 E. Liberty Street. We’ll have good food, great people, and lots of tool demonstrations!
Check out the event calendar for a listing of classes taking place between September 6th-9th. We’ll teach you all you need to know to get started using our Vinyl cutter, Laser Cutter, 3D printer, or the CNC machine.
