This Sunday, October 27th, from 11:30 until 1:30, join Ned at the space as they laser-engrave a pumpkin for Halloween. Ned will cover both the hardware and software setup for this engrave, and be around to answer questions as it's running, so you can know how to laser engrave yourself in the future! This is a completely free, super chill workshop.
Hey all, Join us for 2 (two!) donate-what-you-want learn-how-to-do-your-own-oil-change workshops. Both at NOON, on Saturday Oct. 20th, and Oct. 27th, [Jared] will be changing the oil in a 2012 Prius on the 20th, and a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan on the 27th.
This short series of "workshops" will be as hands-on as you would like it to be (i.e., if you just want to watch, that's fine, or if you want to lay on the ground up under the car and get your hands dirty that's fine too.) and will have all of the necessary supplies provided. You will leave this event with knowledge about how to perform a simple oil change in a car.
N.B. A big shout-out to [William] who ran this workshop earlier this year and taught me how to perform an oil change.
