Megan Goldberg here with RGC Access, and I have some exciting news! We are pleased to announce our new partnership with MAKE Santa Fe! MAKE Santa Fe is a large makers space just off of Siler Road in Santa Fe. It has a large variety of tools, resources, and workshops. They are dedicated to creating a space that is accessible for all and are offering monthly interpreted workshops.
This month MAKE is offering an ASL Interpreted Woodshop Workshop on September 15 from 12:30 to 4:30. Get a broad understanding of navigating a well equipped wood shop while learning the safety basics through practice. In this course makers will begin with unmilled lumber and process it through various wood shop machines to get hands on experience with a variety of tools in the shop resulting in a mini hat rack to take home with them!
I have personally had a chance to explore the space, and I can tell you it is very welcoming with an amazing assortment of tools. My favorite so far is the Laser Cutter and the Sewing Machines! Please click HERE for a detailed list of their tools. I am excited to check out the Woodshop on the 15th and hope to see some of you local ASL users there. To register or for more information, click HERE.
Please spread the word and check back on MAKE’s calendar to see the next ASL interpreted workshop.
