The workshops are broken into two three-hour sessions. Please select six (6) different dates and times in order of your preference, and we'll let you know what works! (Required)



How long are the workshops?

Each workshop is about 3 hours over the course of 2 days (6 hours total).  It takes at least a day for the glue to dry, so we cannot do a full workshop in one day.

Where are the workshops held?IMG_4167

We run our workshops at Fab Lab San Diego: 847 14th St. San Diego, CA 92101.  To bring our workshop to your organization, please contact us!

How old do I need to be?

Ages 8 and up, but if you are under 16, you must attend with a parent or guardian.  Power tools ARE used in this workshop.

Will I paint my graphic in this workshop?
