Join our Maker Club

Hello maker friends!

We invite you to join our Maker Club, which meets every Wednesday from 6 to 9pm, to create cool projects together. We make all sorts of things: wooden pens, buzzers, interactive art, robots, home gadgets, you name it.

This month, our Maker Club includes these new beginner activities:

  • Make a wooden puzzle using hand tools.
  • Make a pen on the lathe, to give it a beautiful wood body.
  • Make fun buzzers to turn on lights and make things move.

Would you like to join us? You are welcome to make any project you like — and we’ll help you with it. If you’d like to try it for a month, we invite you to sign up for our next series of four workshops, starting on Feb. 8. No prior experience required.

To learn more, we hope you’ll come to our free meetup for Tam Makers this Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 6pm at the Tam High School woodshop in Mill Valley. We’ll give demos and talk about our new Maker Club. This is a good opportunity to meet some of our creative members, watch them build things and ask them questions.

Hope to see you there!
