Two of the questions we often get at Workshop 88 are: “How many people show up to your public meeetings?” and “What usually goes on at your public meetings?”
If you’ve been wondering the same things about Workshop 88, take a look at what was going on during our last meeting:
If you’ve never been to Workshop 88 before, the video gives a sense of how the makerspace is laid out. We have four areas from front to back: meeting room, wood/metal shop, electronics/rapid prototype lab, and multimedia room. All the rooms get a lot of use; it just happened that when the video was shot there were not many people in the back rooms.
Have you been coming to Workshop 88 public meetings on Thursday nights? If you haven’t been yet, or it’s been awhile since you’ve been in, you may be surprised to see all the stuff that is going on at the meetings each week. Thanks to Workshop 88 member Bill Paulson for snapping the photos last week!
Workshop88 is happy to announce a new meeting schedule staring February 2012. Meetings will be at 7 pm Thursday evenings every week, and the open hack night will be Monday nights. Class schedules and the meetup schedule will be updated to reflect these changes. Board meetings will be scheduled once a month.
We look forward to seeing you at our new weekly meetings.
The meeting tonight will be moved to next week at 7:30 pm.
We’re also going to be changing the format of our Monday night meetings a bit. There will be a board meeting at 6:30, open to full members of Workshop 88, where we’ll discuss internal business. Public meetings will be at 7:30, and will be more of an open forum to discuss projects.
For obvious reasons our Public Meeting, scheduled to occur on Monday, February 14, 2011 6:30 PM has been cancelled. We may be rescheduling this meeting for a later day in the week or the following week.
Keep your eyes peeled, and enjoy your Valentines Day!
UPDATE: We’ve shifted the meeting schedule by one week to accommodate. Our meetings will resume our normal every other week schedule starting on the 21st of Febuary. Our Meetup and Eventbrite calendars have been adjusted to reflect this change.
After a lot of wall scraping on Saturday (wherein Andrew and I tackled the spackle issue with great intellectual vigor), we’re finally moving onto the priming and painting portion of the project. Thanks to everyone who came out and put their time in!
Anyway, this post is about our General Meeting next Monday, which we are having, as usual. Here’s the Plancast plan: http://planca.st/68j
Hope to see you all there.
