Hive Cleanup/Potluck/Game night Saturday April 14, 2018 starting at 3:00.

By Brad Walsh on

This Saturday we will have another cleanup from around 3:00pm till about 6:00pm.
Then we will have a potluck where people can bring some group friendly food and drinks, after that we hope to have a game night.
For the cleanup feel free to stop by and help get the Hive in semi-presentable shape. Nothing fancy, just mopping, and organization.
The potluck doesn't really have a theme, bring something you like.
The game night can be any fun group game and is rather informal.

If you have any questions drop a message on the mailing list.

Both Events require basic machine safety gear

•Substantial shoes (no sandals or open toe) Hot metal chips can hurt.

•Long hair pulled back in a ponytail.

•No hand jewelry (rings, watches).

•Eye protection (safety glasses can be provided).

•Prefer no long sleeves, they can be rolled up though.

•Idea is to not have anything to catch on the spinning tool/part and pull you into the process.

Upcoming Class: Making a Wetmolded Leather Mask: Feb 3, 2018 12-4pm

By Brad Walsh on

DESCRIPTION
In preparation for Mardi Gras or any other event that deserves a mask, we will go over the basics of wetmolding to take a flat piece of leather and turn it into a 3 dimensional leather mask. This is an introduction to a technique of shaping leather to create a hardened shape that is used for not only masks, but cases, holsters, bags, and anything else that should maintain its shape.

We will have a few basic templates to base your design from and then form it to perfectly fit your face. Then you can go crazy dying, painting, bedazzling, and adorning your mask to suit how feel.

No previous experience with leather is needed as we will go over all the cutting and forming.

The $10 fee for the class covers everything to make the mask; leather, ribbon, dye or paint. If you want to be extra creative and add rhinestones or a life size pheasant to yours you'll need to supply the rhinestones and/or life size pheasant.
