          • Start a makerspace in Pretoria East

            I've always been a maker. I share your values - to be creative isn't an option, it is a fundamental part of many people... To share, to create more value than we started off with, is how we learn and help and empower and ultimately grow the economy. (And have loads of fun!)

            My tools are currently in a container and strewn around my house, with no place to play and very limited space to build.

            Please let me know what you are planning around here, if I didn't have to work full-time, I'd think about doing this myself!

            Best…

                • Have a designing course

                  Good day,

                  I run a small laser creations business offering items like cake toppers, personalised hangers, etc however the women who does my designing and laser cutting can now only offer laser cutting as she does not have the time. She now requires DXF files from me for cutting.

                  I attended a team building for Derivco with you and thought you might be able to assist?

                  Please may you advise whether you can assist with courses or put me in contact with someone who offers them?

                  Regards,
                  Tenielle

                              • create a map area on the site, so that makers can find other makers nearest to them.

                                I live in Pmb, just too far to regularly get to Ballito or Dbn. If I had a way to find other folks in Pmb with who we could meet regularly locally, and then meet in Ballito/Dbn on a less frequent basis, we could get the ball rolling here!

                                        • RaspberryPi Programming Workshop

                                          A two hour workshop to show people how easy it is to get going with using the RaspberryPi for projects. The workshop would include an overview of the Pi architecture and the GPIO's. Then some cli utilities such as wiringPi, and then writing some code in Python/PHP to use the GPIO's in a coding project.
