Come learn new skills at Tam Makers, our makerspace for adults and youth in Mill Valley.
We invite you to join some of our first classes and events, before they fill up:
Here is more info about these classes and events. We hope to see you there!
Learn to create interactive objects with the popular Arduino board!
This course will show you how to build simple interactive systems with an Arduino micro-controller, used by millions of makers around the world. You will learn how to make lights blink, play sounds, move things — and bring it all together to create a fun interactive experience.
This 3-part course will be on Thursdays, June 16, 23 and 30, between 6 and 8pm. The cost is $160 for 3 classes. Arduino boards and electronic parts are included, and you can take them home with you at the end of the course (a $50 value). No experience is necessary.
You Can Make It
Make your own gadget, jewelry, sculpture, robot or other invention!
In this open workshop, you build your own project with your own materials. Some guidance is provided by instructors and other participants.
You will develop a range of maker skills, from design to electronics, maker art and light woodworking. And you will join a community of makers who like to make things together and learn from each other.
This workshop will be on Wednesdays, June 29, July 6 and 13, between 6 and 9pm. The cost is $72 for 3 nights — or $36 per night on drop-in basis.
No experience is necessary. If you have already taken our Arduino or laser cutting courses, you can also use those tools to enhance your interactive experience.
To hear more about Tam Makers and our other classes, please come to our Welcome Meetup on Wednesday, June 8 at 6pm.
During this free event, we will show you our makerspace, talk about our first maker classes and discuss your ideas for growing our maker community together.
The shop will open at 6pm, with quick tours of our wood shop and computer lab, as well as demos of recent projects. At 7pm, we will present the Tam Makers initiative and host a group discussion afterwards. We’ll then network informally and get to know each other, before wrapping up at 9pm.
We hope to see you soon!
