We love to share our space and host events for our members. Part of being a member is the ability to host a small (10-15 attendees) event at the space. Midsouth Makers has hosted MemphisPHP.org Meetups, Board meetings for Memphis Technology Foundation and HACKmemphis, as well as many smaller events such a LAN parties and other gatherings for organizations.
How Do you host an event at Midsouth Makers?
Step 1: One of our members must be deeply involved with your organization and take responsibility for being at the space while the event is happening.
Step 2: The Midsouth Makers member that is your representative must contact the board email@example.com to schedule the event to ensure it does not interfere with any other events at the space.
Step 3: Promote your event! We’ll help Promote your event across all of our public channels.
Remember: Midsouth Makers is a functioning shop and work area constantly in use by our members. While members have first priority to using the space we do try to facilitate meetings and gatherings where our members are deeply involved as much as we can.

Scott brought a plaster mold to the open house meeting tonight. He used 3D printed PLA parts and used the forge to burn out the PLA plastic and to melt some aluminum cans and some aluminum heat sinks. We ended up cooking the mold a bit too much, it was rather fragile. We could probably burn it out in under 30 minutes for the next attempt. While not perfect, we learned a lot!
On Saturday April 12th we’ll be having another LAN party!
