With fall approaching - we need some workshops or theme nights in the calendar. Please join in and share what you know - it’s a great way to community build and also helps us bring in new members., have you thought about running a workshop at VHS? Please do!
Workshops run in the past:
- Steambending wood
- how to solder
- learning to code
- learning to use graphic design software
- AM radio kit build
- retro computer night
- toy hacking drop in
- circuit bending
- paper prototyping
- building a knitting yarn swift
- sock knitting
- making seed bombs
- other things that members know/are interested in
Check out the events category 2 to see some examples.
Obviously some types of workshops require materials/money collected up front. Some are public and some are members only. It’s up to you.
Or how about a theme night?
Another easy way to run an event is to have a theme night where people drop in for a casual gathering. For example if you know a bunch about programming RGB LEDS – why not run an LED night where everyone drops by with their light-related projects? People can work together, show off there projects, and share info.
You need a Keyholder to open the space
If you’re not a keyholder, you’ll need a keyholder to open the space for your event but there are lots of us around so just ask, check the VHS calendar, set a time/date, and add it to the calendar. If you need help, just ask. Often other members assist with workshops. They are a fun time. Also don’t forget to advertise your event on talk/slack/twitter/etc.
