        <div class="gmail_quote"> Starting April 5, Ace Monster Toys
          Hackerspace in Oakland is pleased to<br>
          host a month of design courses and workshops with Régis
          Lemberthe of<br>
          A&Ré Design.<br>
          <br>
          Originally trained as an industrial designer, Régis graduated
          with his<br>
          Master's Degree in Humanitarian Design And Sustainable Living
          before<br>
          moving to Berlin and getting involved in the local maker
          community. He<br>
          now presents several different workshops there, in parallel
          with his<br>
          activities as part of A&Ré Design Studio.<br>
          <br>
           From his description of the Design Tour (<font

          "One of the most appropriate and exciting answers to mass
          production and<br>
          consumption, the maker movement has in the last years gained<br>
          considerable recognition. Fab labs and hacker spaces are being
          created<br>
          in every major city, offering those familiar with low-scale
          productions<br>
          techniques access to adequate machinery, as well as training
          for<br>
          everyone else. Skill sharing in fab labs is based on the
          know-how and<br>
          experience of artists, designers, makers, programmers and
          hackers<br>
          committed to making production accessible to all. Yet, while
          some<br>
          techniques are widely spread, others sadly remain more
          confidential.<br>
          After a few years spent facilitating events at Betahaus
          Berlin, French<br>
          designer Régis Lemberthe goes on tour - a series of craft
          workshops and<br>
          social+collaborative design courses hosted in maker spaces of
          various<br>
          different cities - lasting for a month, wherever interest and
          facilities<br>
          are. It has started in 2013 in Betahaus Berlin and will
          continue in<br>
          early 2014 in the US, Canada and London before proceeding
          towards<br>
          south-east Asia. "<br>
