Flags uk de hacked.jpg

                      Can we do a workshop at your hackerspace or library or museum or school or artist space (or wherever!) this May?
                             (We are currently all booked for the UK -- so we're looking for any and all interested spaces in Germany.)

                      Please email me for questions, or to get more info:

We were paid by the UK Maker Faire to go to/from Europe this spring. So Mitch Altman and Jimmie Rodgers are giving workshops and talks at UK hackerspaces and at the UK Maker Faire, and then taking the train to Berlin on 3-May, where we'll be giving workshops and/or talks at any interested spaces in Germany till 4-June, when Mitch flies home to San Francisco. Jimmie flies home a bit earlier, on 16-May.

Our workshops are for all ages, and all skill levels.

Workshops are great ways to attract new cool people to your hackerspace or other organization (existing or forming), and to energize people already at the space. You can also use the workshops to raise funds, if you like.

Me and Jimmie don't make money from our workshops. The money we charge (€10 to €20, depending on the kit) pays for kit parts and travel. We do this because we love teaching people how to make cool things! And we love helping hackerspaces and other cool orgs.


Would you be interested in having us do workshops at your space?

Please let me know!

Workshops & Talks

This is the workshop that we can do for this tour:

  • Variety of Cool Kits / Learn to Solder workshop (3 hours)

We'll be bringing lots of our kits, all designed for total beginners, but fun and intriguing enough for everyone. We can teach anyone and everyone how to solder -- soldering actually is easy!
        Itinerary:
                 * intro
                 * demo of all available kits, and how they work
                 * learn how to solder!
                 * everyone solders their kit, with as much help as they need

  • We can also give talks, if there's interest.
  • I'm also happy to share experience and compare notes on keeping spaces and communities healthy and strong.
  • Anything that can help out your hackerspace!
