WKS804: Make a Leather Wallet

I love the smell of laser burnt leather in the morning! How many times have you said that? Not many ... but how many times have you hunted for the ideal wallet? Too many!

In this workshop, you will learn how to design patterns and artwork on the computer, then cut your patterns and carve your artwork into leather with a laser. You will also learn leather sewing techniques and apply them to assemble your highly personalized wallet!

Please note: Workshops utilize TechShop’s equipment; all shop rules apply – unless you have passed our required safety courses (SBU's) your instructor will assist you on the equipment. This is not an SBU workshop – you must pass the appropriate Safety and Basic Use class to use TechShop's equipment unattended.

WKS235: Raspberry Pi Basics: Getting Started with Raspberry Pi

This class is the first step in using a Raspberry Pi! In this 3 hour workshop, you will learn the basic architecture, hardware, software and setup of a raspberry pi, as well as common use functions throughout the GUI and command line.

What is a Raspberry Pi?

Raspberry Pi is an inexpensive, richly capable single board computer (SBC) designed for educational settings and excellent for a wide range of hobby activities. Featuring a modest speed ARM processor and a half gigabyte of RAM, it has interfaces for flash SD, USB, ethernet, HDMI graphics, audio, LCD panels, digital cameras, and direct digital I/O. The hardware works well with a highly capable port of Debian Linux and other operating systems as a general-purpose computing system that can as easily host your home web server or LAN engine as it can keep an eye on your thermostat or drive a cat food dispenser while you're away.



Materials fee Raspberry Pi.
