Just to give everyone an update, Ben, Claudio, Dan, and Joe have been up at the new space working nearly everyday since we’ve signed the lease. We have taken down all the walls we needed to take down. We’ve fixed the drop ceiling in the community room. We’ve prepped the walls of the community room to be primed and painted. We need to put up a couple of walls and we’ll be ready to start moving stuff in.
We’re still waiting on the AC to be fixed (Hasn’t worked since we’ve been there) and we’re waiting on a guy to come fix the broken glass in the front door.
We are going to be up working on the new space every night this week. If any members would like to come give us a hand we would greatly appreciate it. Let us know when you plan on coming out, we don’t want to get too many people in the space and not be able to get any work done.
Hoping to get our Comcast connection moved over (as well as our servers/camera setup) sometime Friday. We’re just waiting on Comcast to schedule a time/date.
Not as much drastic progress on the new space today, however we did a good bit to fix the drop ceiling in the common room. We’re waiting on landlord approval to remove and rebuild a couple small walls in order to close off a small room.
We signed the lease today and we’ve already started making our changes. The biggest thing we need to do before we start moving stuff in is take down the walls we want to take down. We made a lot of progress tonight. We will be up at the new space likely every night this week working.
We’re still going to have a big move day, we’re still not sure exactly when that will be but we’ll announce it when we know.
Just wanted to pass along a link about our very own Judith Dierkes that was published in the memphis flyer. You can read the article online here: http://www.memphisflyer.com/ExhibitM/archives/2011/12/11/judith-dierkes-pop-up-art-gallery
The article is about her pop up art gallery.
You asked for it, and we got it! One of most requested items in our events poll was welding, and our very own member Kit has graciously offered to demonstrate the basics this Saturday at noon at the Space. Please be aware that this is a hands-on demonstration only – it is not a replacement for any actual welding training, and can be very dangerous.
We will be covering the three types of arc welding as well as plasma cutting, starting with a safety lecture, a group how-to, then a short one-on-one section. After everyone has been shown the basics and demonstrates a thorough understanding of the concepts and inherent dangers, we will offer participants the chance to try it themselves.
If you wish to participate, please sign up at http://www.midsouthmakers.org/events so that we can know how many people to expect.
What: A demonstration of basic welding and techniques as well as important safety guidelines that you must follow, with a brief hands-on opportunity for those interested at the end.
When: This Saturday, December 3rd at Noon.
Cost: $10 (to cover the cost of the welding fuel and materials involved)
What to Bring: Make sure that you wear long-sleeves, and preferably nothing loose or flammable.
