Come make your own gadget, robot or wearable art with Arduino at Tam Makers!

We hosted a number of maker classes and workshops for adults and teens in our makerspace at Tam High School. During our Arduino 101 classes and ‘You Can Make It’ workshops, participants learned to build new projects using the popular Arduino boards, with guidance from our staff and other community members.

Many of our members are experienced makers, who are happy to share what they know. Some of the cool maker projects they built together include a graceful robot spider, an eagle god with creepy eyes, an Arduino-powered garage opener, a Wifi server on a chip, and more.

If you are interested in creating your own maker project with the help of others, join our Maker Clubs on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9pm in the woodshop at Tam High School in Mill Valley.

Come make your own art, tech or woodworking project at Tam Makers!

Every week, we host a ‘Maker Club’, an open workshop for adults and teens in our makerspace at Tam High School. Club members like to ‘show and tell’ their latest projects, and bring their own materials to build new projects, with guidance from our staff and other community members.

Many of our members are experienced makers, who are happy to share what they know. Some of the cool maker projects we have built in our makerspace include a graceful robot spider, an eagle god with creepy eyes, an Arduino-powered garage opener, a Wifi server on a chip, and more.

London’s New Design Museum at Holland Park – May, 2017
Maker Projects

"The first thing to say about the new improved Design Museum ……… is that it is an exceptional achievement. It is a space for celebrating and exploring the made and the visual, the magic of human invention, the objects that shape our lives, and the skills and forces that shape them. First glimpses of its permanent and temporary exhibitions suggest intriguing (if strongly western-oriented) displays. This is important, valuable, thrilling stuff, when you consider what the Model T Ford or the iPhone have done for and to the world.

The project, in Kensington High Street, west London, has enrolled some considerable talents: the minimalist designer John Pawson has created the museum’s interior, and OMA, the world-famous architects led by Rem Koolhaas, have both masterplanned the city block in which it stands and designed the luxury apartments that play an important part in making it viable. A relic of 1960s optimism has been restored, the half-beautiful, half-quaint hyperbolic paraboloid roof of the otherwise demolished former Commonwealth Institute, its propensity to leak fixed, and the new museum has been installed under its sheltering wing.

The achievement would have been greater if OMA had designed the museum and Pawson had designed the luxury apartments
New palaces of culture like this don’t happen often or easily, yet the new improved Design Museum has come into being over the decade of the Great Recession and with limited government support. It is the result of 10 years’ effort by its director, Deyan Sudjic, formerly of the Observer. It is the culmination of more than 60 years’ campaigning for good modern design by Terence Conran, the retailer-restaurateur-designer who founded and helps fund the Design Museum. More specifically it owes its origins to the Boilerhouse design gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum, which Conran helped set up in 1981, which then morphed into the Design Museum, which opened in its first building near Tower Bridge in 1989."

"The Design Museum is a museum in Kensington, London, which covers product, industrial, graphic, fashion and architectural design. The museum operates as a registered charity, and all funds generated by ticket sales aid the museum in curating new exhibitions. Entrance is free to the museum’s permanent collection display, "Designer Maker User". The museum was founded in 1989 by Sir Terence Conran. It was originally located by the River Thames near Tower Bridge, and later relocated to Kensington.

In June 2011, Sir Terence Conran donated £17.5 million to enable the Museum to move in 2016 from the warehouse to a larger site which formerly housed the Commonwealth Institute in west London. This landmark from the 1960s, a Grade II* listed building that had stood vacant for over a decade, was developed by a design team led by John Pawson who made the building fit for a 21st-century museum, whilst at the same time retaining its spatial qualities.

The Design Museum opened in its Kensington location on 24 November 2016. The move gave the museum three times more space than in its previous location at Shad Thames, with the new Swarovski Foundation Centre for Learning, 202-seat Bakala Auditorium and a dedicated gallery to display its permanent collection, accessible free of charge. The move brought the museum into Kensington’s cultural quarter, joining the Royal College of Art, V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum and Serpentine Gallery."
