Announcements / FamiLAB Annual Meeting - March 24th 2018
« Last post by Hybridsix on March 03, 2018, 10:55:53 PM »
Hi, everyone! It's that time again, time to gather at the lab, talk about prior years, elect some board members, eat some good food, and move together into the future of FamiLAB.

It's extremely important that everyone comes out for the meeting to vote for the open spots on the board, vote on issues, and to discuss new FamiLAB developments. We always try to keep this short and to the point, but it will be longer than an average member meeting. On the other hand, there's food!


When? 24th March 2018, 3:00pm
Where? FamiLAB! 1355 Bennett Drive, suite 105
Food? Catered by 4 Rivers. Please RSVP so we can get a headcount for seating and food, and please consider donating to offset food costs (also on the Eventbrite). Tickets will only be available until the Thursday before so that we have time to order the food in advance.

Links to the post for nominations and discussion thread (since this forum is heavily moderated) are below:

Thank you,

Yo, I'm Miguel.  I travel to music festivals around the country and sell art for a living full time.  I am a carpenter by trade.  I really want to get into welding and glass blowing.  When it comes to art and crafting, pendants is what I mainly do.  This year I will be starting to build larger art installations for music festivals and art related events.  I am also in the process of building my own CNC/Laser machine - so far we got the parts XD.  Hoping to have my machine up and running by April at the latest.  I am looking forward to being around more like-minded individuals and having the opportunity to learn about new things that I have been interested in.

Hey everyone, my name is Zac and I go by fractalisman on slack as well.

I'm a tattoo artist from Winter Park and I like making and building things and I've been excited to become a member since my first introduction to Familab a year ago. I've met quite a few of you since then that have inspired me with all your amazing creations and I hope to learn and share ideas and skills with you all.

As for myself, I'm obsessed with music, and synthesizers specifically, and love to build and play modular synths as well as play drum machines and guitars, which I've never built but after seeing the wood shop I've definitely been thinking about it. I've dabbled a little in making guitar effects and synths on breadboards and perf boards and I'm looking forward to learning how to use the pcb mill and make my first circuit boards and would appreciate any tips you familab members have to offer.
I've been drawing and painting for most of my life in more traditional mediums like oil and acrylic paints, but I've wanted to branch out into sculpture and fabrication and I can see Familab as a great place to be able to do that. From the wood shop to the HAAS to the 3d printers and laser etcher, there's a plethora of amazing tools that I can't wait to dive in and start creating with.

Walking around the shop and seeing all your creations makes me excited to meet everyone and I can't wait to see what ideas we can inspire in one another!

I've let mom know about all this talk about Jewelry, even though she has been getting notifications of it in her inbox she hasn't checked the forums since it requires breaking out her iMac to connect properly for some reason  ::)

Hi Nick,

I will head on over there. I'm STILL trying to figure out this whole Slack thing. I don't know what it is. I could figure out every other social media platform but for some reason Slack confuses me.

Hi there! Come chat with us in Slack if you aren't already there. The #arts-and-crafts channel or #metalworking are probably the best places to talk about making jewelry. We've got a lot of the supplies and equipment needed, so if you and the others wanted to claim a workbench for it you're more than welcome to!

Hi Dana,

That sounds great! I have some loose stones I'd like to do something with. I have a coworker that may also like to join us- though she is not a member of FamiLab. And no rush, I'll be around :).

I have been gathering jewelry making supplies.  Also supplies for casting in silver.
I would get together with others to learn and get me doing something with what I have.
I have multiple pursuits at this time, but would make some time.
My grandmother was a jewelry maker and I always wanted to get to where I could make things I love.
