You Can Make It

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

We started a new ‘open shop’ program called ‘You Can Make It’, to help you create your own maker project with our community. This workshop for adults and teens takes place on Wednesday evenings in our makerspace at Tam High School in Mill Valley. Our first series was held on three Wednesdays in a row: June 29th, July 6th and 13th, between 6 and 9pm.

On the first night, we helped eight participants plan their projects, prepare their materials and develop new skills. They then built their projects the following weeks, with guidance from instructors and other participants.

Here are examples of projects they worked on: a garage door opener, an animated owl, an engraving, solar-powered lights, a theremin, a wooden frame, an illuminated art piece and more. They used a wide range of tools to build them, from Arduino boards to our laser cutter, oscilloscope, and radio transmitters and solar-power technology.

One of the great benefits of this open shop program is that you get a lot more than just access to tools: you join a community of makers who like to make things together and help each other. On that first night, we had three mentors on hand to coach participants: Geo Monley, Fabrice Florin and Donald Day, who also teach at Tam Makers.

Participants seemed to enjoy this ‘You Can Make It’ open shop and told us they got a lot from it. This is one of our first maker workshops at Tam Makers, and we’re really happy that it is going well; we look forward to offering more open shop sessions in the fall.

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.

If you are interested in creating your own maker project with the help of others, join our Maker Clubs!
