EVENT: Desktop Siege Machines Build and Battle – Thursday March 6th – Open to Public

Assorted materials will be available for constructing devices to launch small objects (Hershey’s Kiss sized) to knock over targets (plastic cups).
Build a catapult using supplied materials, or bring your own materials, and compete for distance and accuracy!

Prizes will be awarded for distance, accuracy, and creativity!

This event is open to all ages.

See you there 6pm-??? Thursday March 6th at the Appleton Makerspace!

Art, Wine & Music, Fri 2/28, 5:30pm – 8:30pm


Painting, sculpting & musical fun continue!
Last week we passed around the paint brushes and an acoustic guitar, plus had a surprise visit from a few newcomers!

If you’re a procrastinator like me, let me assure you there is no pressure to this event – just come, hangout, and let your creativity flow :)

Thanks to a few members, we have an ‘easel’ to use now, in the form of a giant digitizer tablet – just make sure to use it for drawing and tempera only, as acrylics and oils would damage it.   The thing is huge!


  • your favorite beverage,
  • your pot-luck meal and
  • your supplies

…  a $10 donation to help pay for utilities would be nice, if you have it laying around :)

If you’ve never painted before:   I have about 30 sponge brushes, a bunch of tempera paint, and we’ll cut paper off the roll.
