MAKERCIRCLE @ TAG ATELIER – 20th and 27th February

Posted by Jess

Exceptionally, the TAG maker circle will not be hosting a directed workshop this Friday, the 20th of February, and will be closed due to President’s Holiday on the 27th.

On the 20th, the Maker Circle will run as normal from 2PM-5PM and will continue to be open as a peer-assisted workspace from 5PM to 7PM. However, we won’t be following our regular meeting format as two of our hosts will be away. Feel free to come work on your projects in the space!

For those who wish to practice their soldering or have a specific request, Jess Blanchet will be in the space with a soldering iron from 2PM to 5PM.

You can read more about our regular format below!

This new initiative is aimed at providing a supportive community for peer learning, skill-sharing and finally starting on that totally absurd project idea that you had and never thought you would get to do.

Beside games, we are open to any kind of artistic or creative realizations regardless of your background or experience or level of skills. This maker space is all about promoting craftmanship and free creative expression of all kinds. We believe in sharing ideas and passing skills from person to person. In order to do so we will conduct a series of mini workshops including soldering, 3D printing, fibercrafts, and reading schematics. The workshops will be offered in a variety of skill levels, ranging from beginner to intermediate and will be announced on our website and twitter.

Come help us define what our maker circle should look like, meet some new friends, and make all the things.

2.00-5.00 pm: The space will be open to anyone who wishes to use the resources available.
5.00-7.00 pm: The last two two hours will be more structured around skill-sharing and peer teaching. Check the website for event description.
WHO: You and your crafty friends.
WHAT: The Maker Circle
WHEN: Fridays from 2PM until 7PM
WHERE: The TAG Atelier (Concordia University, EV Building 11.425)

We offer technical support in any kind of crafting or structural issues. If you have questions about that do not hesitate to contact Jessica Blanchet at
