Week of Events
Open hack nights are a chance for people to come out to Knox Makers and hack on anything at any skill level. You can come out to practice a new programming language, get help working on your personal projects, or try your hand at using the 3d printer. You might just come out to see what other folks are working on and lend a hand. If you know anyone who has been curious to come out to Knox Makers, please invite them along!
Like all other Tuesday nights, this event is free and open to the public. Our night will begin with a Show and Share where attendees are encouraged to bring out the projects they have been working on. This is a great time to request feedback for the future direction of your project, or you can just bring out something you want to show off. We hope to see you there!
This class will cover topics related to safe and correct operation of equipment within the woodworking area, as well as some shop etiquette guidelines. This is the authorization class for the area and is required prior to using the equipment. Safe practices will be demonstrated and learned by a hands on approach in the context of taking rough lumber through the process of milling and operation of all equipment in the space. If you have previously paid and attended a wood authorization class then we encourage you to audit the class free of charge at any time.
The cost is $24.96 for Knox Makers members, $44.96 for General Public. There will be a maximum of 8 spots of this class, and a minimum of 4 tickets must be sold. If the class minimum is not met 48 hours prior to class start time, the class we be canceled and all tickets will be refunded.
Sublimation printing is soft on fabric like silk screening and not stiff like HTV (heat transfer vinyl.) Come learn how to print your favorite image on special paper then use the heat press to transfer it to a shirt, hat, mug or plate. While this class is focused on sublimation, the heat press is not limited to only sublimation prints. You can press HTV designs cut out on the Silhouette or vinyl cutter.
There will be a short talks on how to and not to press each item integrated with hands on time. Every student will press their name onto the auth shirt and leave with a 15oz coffee cup printed with a design of their choice.
Pre-requisites: Create an image of your name for the shirt and up to a 4" x 9.5" image for your mug.
