XXY Tool Club: CNC 101
May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$25
Excited about the tool library, but don’t know where to start? Got a project but don’t know what tools to use? Sick of being told to “leave it to the boys”? In this workshop, participants will learn how to safely use the CNC machine.
This will be the first in a two-part series about how to use power tools to make a chopping board. Participants are encouraged to bring their own nice piece of wood, but offcuts will be provided for those who cannot.
This workshop is specifically for people who identify as women or femme. In the U.K., women make up 48% of the workforce, but only 24% of the STEM workforce. Building a community of makers means building a community of allmakers. MKRLAB recognises the historic exclusion of women and gender diverse people from the making arts. This initiative is part of a greater mission to actively invite women and gender diverse groups to make with us.
