Do you know what EL Wire (Electroluminescent Wire) is? If so, have you ever used it in a project? If you answered no to any of these questions, you need to check out this class at i3 Detroit.
Matt Switlik will be teaching a class on how to use EL Wire in projects as well as walking everyone through a hands on demo of your very own light up hat.
The class will be taught on Friday December 10th, 2010 at 7pm. There will be a material fee of $35 dollars for the hat kit which includes everything you need to make the hat. If you would like to bring your own object to add EL Wire to the power supply will be $10 and the wire will be available in white (pictured on the left) and pink for $2 per foot.

Tuesday night at 6:45pm, join Mike and Michael and the rest of the SEMCO Linux SIG for a discussion of live Linux-based tool discs for a variety of purposes, including backup, system recovery, password management, forensics, anti-virus, and more. Most of these discs are intended for use on both Linux and Windows systems. As Michael says, trying to fix Windows from within Windows is often like trying to do a valve job on an engine while it’s running–these discs allow users to “step outside” Windows to get under the hood. Specific CDs will be discussed and demonstrated.
The talk is open to all — SEMCO members, i3Detroit members, and neither!
Join us for our monthly-ish Papercraft Party this Thursday: an informal gathering of people who like paper crafts. If you’re a scrapbooker, you can bring your latest project. Learn to use the Cricut to cut intricate shapes, and even your own digital drawings in SVG format! Or, get ready for the holidays by making gift wrap or garland or Christmas cards.
Not sure what to make? Come browse our new, complete collection of CRAFT: Magazines! Here’s some inspiration from the CRAFT: website:
Bring your own supplies for your intended project, but there will certainly be some sharing if you want to try something new!
Join Nick, at 4p on 11/7, as he walks the class through the very basics of how to operate each of these machines. He will cover safety, tooling, measurement, set-up & operation of the mill, lathe & precision drill press.
Nick is a self-trained machinist so he won’t have all the answers. But you will get a good overview on how to safely use the equipment for simple projects. You will also be equipped with the fundamentals to seek out further training on your own.
The class will be $5 to go toward the tooling repair fund. Please register on eventbrite.
This is a demonstation class but feel free to bring some aluminum stock to practice with after the class.
The workshop will show you how to use a pattern, basic sewing machine use, some sewing techniques to hide stitches, and how to create a puppet’s structure and features. The puppet design is a hand-and-rod style similar to a Muppet. Bring fabric if you have an idea you want to try, but lots of material will be on hand to get you started. There is no cost for this workshop, but we are suggesting a $10 donation to i3Detroit.
Come on down and join the fun!
