Vegan Halloween Food Making & Video Demo

Would you like to learn how to film your maker projects better, in order to show them to the world via social media?

Would you like to learn to make some tasty vegan treats – with a Halloween theme for this time of year?

Well, we have the workshop for you!

We will demonstrate for you want then you will make two tasty vegan treats for Halloween: Eyeball brigadeiros and carved stuffed pepper Jack-o-lanterns.

Along the way, you will learn how to capture and record the process by video using your mobile phone.

Whether you are making a micro-controller or a micro-snack, publishing and promoting short videos in order to show the world your innovations and creativity are very necessary for Makers today.

So by the end of the workshop, you will have two tasty treats you made yourself and two cool videos that you can publish on social media if you choose.

The only thing you need to bring is a mobile phone with the TikTok app installed and set up.

We will bring and prepare the food for you to use beforehand.

There will be a €10 charge for the workshop to cover the cost of the food and use of the space, and a €5 extra charge for non-tog members to contribute to this member-funded makerspace.

So see you there: Sunday 9th October, 4-6 pm in Tog Hackerspace.

No booking is required.

Maker Night – Work on 3D projects using laser cutter, 3D Printer at TOG

We are kicking off a new public group night in Tog. Maker Night.

Do you like to make things? Would you like to use 3D software, lasercutter and 3D printing to help you make your idea?

TOG has an open evening to learn how CAD software and 3D fabrication tools can help you make your project.

All you need to take part is your own laptop and some ideas on what you want to make.

This is not a taught class, more like an informal working group of self-directed makers.

We will be happy to help you explore how to use our 3D tools in designing and making your project whether you are a crafter, designer, engineer or hobbyist.

Come and have a look at the tools in our space and get some ideas on how your project can be made.

We will kick off tonight from 7 pm and then every second Wednesday going forward.
Join our meetup page to stay informed of our upcoming events.

Electronic “Build-It” Workshop – Line Following Robot

We are hosting an electronic “Build-It” workshop in TOG on Saturday 15th October from 16:00 – 19:00. Many visitors to TOG tell us that they would like to get started with electronics, soldering or assembly, but they are unsure how to do so. This workshop will help. You get to build (and keep) an electronic kit.

The kit that we have chosen is a line-follower robot car. It will follow a black line or any line where there is reasonable contrast. You can see a video of the kit in action, from our previous workshop below.

The kit comes as a complete set of mechanical and electronic parts including a bare circuit board. You do all the electronic assembly and soldering as well as the mechanical assembly. If you’ve never built an electronics kit or soldered it before, then this workshop is ideal for you. We’ll show you everything that you need to know. No previous experience in electronics, soldering or kit assembly is needed.

We’ll explain the circuit and how it works too. All tools and equipment are provided. The workshop will take up to 3 hours, which is plenty of time. All proceeds from this event go to support TOG. We have 7 places available.

Book your place with the following link.

This workshop will be led by Gary, our host of Monday electronics night.

No previous skills are required. We will teach you how to solder and electronic theory and have fun along the way.

Joined The Community Resources Network Ireland

We have joined the Community Resources Network Ireland. We hope to learn from our fellow members and share our knowledge of community repair cafés.

CRNI is the representative body for community based reuse, repair and recycling organisations in Ireland. Our vision is an Ireland where the word ‘Waste’ doesn’t exist and where our entire community benefits from the social, environmental and economic value of all reusable resources. Our aim is to provide a range of practical supports to our members, and to promote community based, sustainable waste management as a practical and effective way of tackling Ireland’s growing waste problem.

Check out the types of things we fixed at our last event.

This event is part of Ireland’s National Reuse Month. This October is all about reuse. Its valuing our stuff, by using and reusing it for as long and as often as possible. This avoids the need to extract raw materials, manufacture and distribute new stuff, and avoids waste thereby cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions.
