Hello, Ferndale DIY Street Fair goers! Here’s a quick rundown of what’s coming up at i3Detroit:
Every Monday: Microcontrollers! This birds-of-a-feather hangout session is for anyone who uses, or is interested in, microcontrollers. Be it AVR or PIC or 8051, we don’t discriminate. Bring projects! Bring questions! Newbies and gurus, members and guests alike are welcome, just drop in. Doors should be open by 6.
Tuesday Sep 21: Meeting and Board elections. ALL MEMBERS should attend, as this is a rather important vote! Meetings are open and non-members are welcome.
Thursday Sep. 30: Hands-on wifi antenna build. Improve your AP’s signal with a handmade biquad antenna. You MUST RSVP by the 22nd to get in on the group parts buy! Members and guests welcome, starts at 6. If you just want to watch and learn but not take home an antenna, there’s no need to reserve a spot.
Saturday Oct. 2: Head casting! Learn to cast body parts for propmaking. Poke your head into i3detroit-public and pipe up if you want to get in on the materials order, also being finalized this week. Spectators also welcome! The going gets messy around 2pm…
September 14th: Needlecraft Gathering. 6pm. Whether it’s stitched, knit, or injected (just kidding!), needles and textiles are the focus of this crafters’ night. Other shop activities will be under way as well, of course…
September 16th: Geeks without Borders. 7pm. A representative of this nonprofit will be speaking on ways we can be more involved in our communities.
September 28: Keep it Sharp! 6pm. A hands-on blade maintenance workshop, bring any non-serrated blade, from a pocketknife to a machete. Learn how to sharpen and hone a blade, how to care for knives, and more. This is likely to be a popular class, so reserve your seat now.
October 7: DIY Filmmaker Meetup. 7pm. Anyone involved or interested in film production is welcome! Show short clips of your work, participate in another talent exchange, or just hang out. It’s been the better part of a year since the last one of these…
Tuesday saw the first step in our plan to revive our class schedule now that our space and sleep schedules have recovered from Maker Faire, and what better way to get started than to have two illustrious makers as our guest lecturers? These two giants were none other than Mitch Altman of Noisebridge and TV-B-Gone fame and Jimmie P. Rodgers of LOLshield fame both of whom are currently on a road trip to promote their clever kits and educate young and old about how easy and fun soldering can be.
With i3 Detroit moved to our brand new location and some build out completed, it’s time to start offering our world famous classes.
So we are bringing back our most popular class of all time, Intro to Lock Picking. Come join globe trotting security specialist Eric Michaud for a night of learning and fun.
The class will start with a hands-on lesson with the master. Sets of lock picks will be available for purchase but it’s first come first serve. You can also buy sets online or at a local spy shop (Southfield, MI). We also ask that everyone bring a standard key opening master lock or similar.
Following the class, we will have a speed tournament for both our experienced pickers and our newly trained amateurs. Prizes will be awarded.
Public – Purchase Lock Picks w/ Class: $20
Public – Just Class: $10
i3 Member – Purchase Lock Picks w/ Class: $10
i3 Member – Just Class: Free!!
Unfortunately, we have to cancel the Bob Ross Paint-Along classes scheduled for this Saturday. We have a conflicting event during the same time that requires the full attention of the group (stay tuned for an amazing post on that). Look out for a rescheduled class in early May. Thanks to everyone who RSVPed. You should be receiving cancellation emails today.
