Metrix Craft and Project Extravaganza and Workshops in the Coming Year


Upcoming on Thursday, December 16th from 7-10pm, we invite you, all your friends, and anyone else you happen to run into on your way down, to come to Metrix to peruse what promises to be an exciting display of creativity during our Craft and Project Extravaganza.  

We are inviting all of our Metrix community members who have Made Something Awesome (whether here at Metrix or otherwise) to display their wares and offer them to you for sale.  This includes jewelry, electronics, clever things, crafts, artwork and photography, and much more.  If you would like to display your awesome project or goods, please message Aimee at Metrix on FB so I can give you more details.  

This will also be a great time to meet more inspiring people and ask each maker, crafter, or artist questions about what they have created.  Spread the word!

Fun Projects!

As far as workshops go, the Intro to Electronics workshop scheduled for Sunday, December 19 has been cancelled.  Please join us on Thursday January 6th instead (see below for full schedule).  

Coming up in January and February, we have a bunch of exciting workshops for you in addition to the monthly stand-bys.  Check out the calendar for a quick view and the workshop link to the left for each workshop’s description including a list of what you need to bring with you.  All workshops are $50 unless otherwise noted.  There are still a few to be scheduled, so keep your eye out for that - they are going to be exciting!  We look forward to seeing you here!    

Tuesday, December 28 
7-9pm  Blinking LED Project Makeshop ($40)
To update the details on this one a bit…  We give you the LEDs, a few other electronic bits, a power source, Bottomless Toolbox for the evening, and some direction.  You bring in something you would like to repurpose and definitely want blinking LEDs in and we’ll see where our combined powers take us.  It’ll be a great way to spend an evening during the Christmas-New Years week.  Feel free to bring someone to collaborate with; the charge will be per kit.
