[Workshop] Introduction to Power Tools

You can get updates from the Tool Library here on their Facebook page

We are running a ‘Beginner’s guide to using power tools’ next Wednesday 24th November between 11.30am and 3.30pm in the Makery at Tod College (a Saturday event will also be announced shortly). This is for beginners looking to gain confidence in using the Library’s tools such as circular saws, jigsaws, drills, nailers and sanders. The workshop will be hands-on and during the session we will make a Little Library for the town.

Monday Night Bike Sessions are now Weekly Drop-Ins

It’s now a drop in.

Thanks to the fantastic bike volunteers John, Will, Martin and Simon we can now offer weekly sessions – and the best bit is that you can just turn up.

These sessions are also informal workshops where you can ask about how to maintain your bike – it’s a great source of information.

However, if you are not sure if we’ll be able to help then it’s a good idea to email us to tell us what up with your bike and even send us snaps. You can do that on the following email – makery-bikes@ googlegroup.com

Workshop [Art] – Lino Printing Taster session

Using a pre-cut lino block to create a wall border with block printing inks. A couple of these workshops have been run already and we’re hoping to do more in the new year.

Date: to be confirmed. Sign up: If you are interested fill out this form with your email and we will contact you in August to arrange.

In a nutshell: Learn how to print an attractive wall border for your home using a hand printed Lino Block. In this first taster session, you’ll start by using a precut block to create a wall border with block printing inks. In future sessions, you’ll be able to move onto cutting your own lino block with your own design. All materials and full instruction provided.

I used to make these to sell when I was at tod studios and always meant to run a workshop on this but never got round to, although several people told me they’d like to have a go! As I still have lots of ink/ rollers and ready cut lino blocks etc I just thought it would be lovely to give people an opportunity to have a go once the workshop space is sorted out.
