Join NextFab for the last Social of the Summer!
Sure, Autumn doesn't officially begin until September 22nd but as far as we are concerned summer ends on Labor Day. So what better way to say so goodbye to this long, lazy season then by spending an evening outdoors!
This month's social will be taking place at Morgan's Pier, a lovely bar that sits on the Delaware River in the shadow of the Ben Franklin Bridge. Come spend an evening with the rest of the NextFab community under the stars.
**Please note: NextFab will be closing at 6pm for this event.
This event is open to all. You can register below.
Thinking of participating in the Yards Tap Handle Throwdown competition, but need to brush up your prototyping skills? Have a great idea, but no access to tools, or space to make it real? Want a little help from a skilled fabricator? This might be exactly what you are looking for...
NextFab proudly announces "Build your tap handle by hand!" workshop. It will take place on Saturday the 17th of August at 3pm.
Prepare to use your very own hands, foam, rasps, craft knives, putty, sandpaper and desire to get dirty!
We will provide:
Foam bricks for carving
mounting hardware for your tap handle (to attach it to a tap)
woodworking hand tools
plenty of space in our fully equipped wood shop
We’ll help you get through shaping, installing the hardware, puttying, and sanding, and tips on painting. You can paint and apply the secret mojo when you get home!
Limit is 12 people. Admission is $5.
For the glory!
For NextFab's August Build night, Instructables is partnering with Jameco, a leading electronic components distributor. At the event we will build projects using parts from a Jameco electronics kit that includes:
This introductory workshop will expose participants to a variety of basic leatherworking tools and techniques and give them a solid base for further exploration of this craft. The first session of this workshop will primarily deal with leather preparation, tooling, lacing, and finishing through brief lectures and demonstrations. In the second session partcipants will be able to choose and complete one of two leather projects from start to finish and take home what they create.
Participants in this workshop will learn a variety of techniques including: pattern transfer, pattern carving and pattern stamping.
This workshop will run 3-4 hours in total. The first hour will be dedicated to discussing the carving and stamping tools included in the leather working kits with short follow-along demos. The following 2-3 hours will be dedicated to completing one of the featured projects. When the workshop is complete, students will get to keep their leather working kits from the class, and will have the opportunity to complete 3 other projects included in the kit at home.
