Last month we sent out a survey to our members asking what changes they would like to see at the lab. After reading their responses we found that members were looking for more opportunities to socialize and to bring their families to the lab. They also requested demos in our shops and more speaker events. We are pleased to announce that we are going to be offering all these events on a monthly basis.
Family Days are designed to give members a chance to work on a project with their children and significant others. Each month, one shop manager will design a project that your family can work on together and leave with a finished piece.
Family Days will be for members only. When signing up for a session, you only need to reserve one spot for your family. These classes will be free, and space will be limited.

Our speakers tell their story and finish up with a Q&A session. This event is open to the public.
