Castlemakers

All Castlemakers events are free and open to all unless otherwise noted! You can also sign up for our monthly events email at this link.

Open Shop time at the Makerspace (19 E. Franklin) in September and October is on Saturdays 9 am-noon and 7-9 pm on Tuesdays. Bring in a project to work on, try one of ours, or just visit! Our equipment list & library continues to grow.

The Castlemakers CoderDojo, a free volunteer-led, community-based programming club for young people, meets the first Saturday of every month. You can visit anytime during the meeting, which is Saturday September 3rd from 1-4 pm.

Want to know how to set up a Raspberry Pi, an extremely popular single board computer? We’re offering a basic class on Wednesday October 19th from 7-9 pm. We’ll also go over using a Raspberry Pi to set up a household online ad blocker! There’s a small charge for this class, more information on our classes webpage.

Wednesday October 26th from 7-9 pm we’ll be offering an Introduction to Tinkercad & 3D Printing class. There is a small charge for this class, for more information & reservations please see our classes webpage.

  1. hi, I have 2 questions; are kids welcome on Tuesdays and are code dojo sessions still being held on the first Saturday of the month?

    1. Definitely on both! Kids are welcome anytime we have open shop (Tuesday nights for now), in May when the Farmer’s Market opens downtown we’ll have the makerspace open Saturday Mornings also.

    1. Hope for late July/early August. Our plan is letting folks make an acrylic keychain or we have some interest in building Dice Towers. The original design software we were going to use needs a laptop at least, which we don’t have enough of to do a class. But working on a way to use Chromebooks, a recent gift we received from Techpoint Foundation for Youth.
