Information wants to be free!

With more and more avenues for creative expression with techno tools we know that artists are bubbling with new ideas for these new tools. Our most active and clever community members want to help you get started!

Our Open Workshops are designed to share information with the cultural community about everything and anything you might be interested in. Get your basics in soldering or learn about Google Sketch Up and then come to the Mod Lab and build a new interactive circuit or use the 3D printer to bring your design to life.

These workshops are not about being an expert, but about sharing ideas about how we make things, so come out and try your hand because we want to build things together!

WHEN: Most Thursdays from 7PM-9PM
WHERE: M70 lab in Artscourt (2 Daly Ave)
WHY: Because Information wants to be free!

Please see our Eventbrite page to sign up for the limited space. Registration starts 1 week before the workshop begins.
