Foam Armor Class

Learn about making foam armor and make your own bracer to take home. We’ll go over the basics of foam armor making, have a hands-on demo, and wrap up with a question and answer session.

The class costs $10 to cover materials. If you can, please bring a heat gun, EVA foam, and concept photos for the Q&A.

Meeting Tonight

Hello everyone! We’re having a general meeting tonight at 7:30 PM at the space. The agenda is here. After the meeting we will be carving pumpkins, stop by and join us. It is BYO, but we will likely have a couple extras just in case.

As always, these meetings are free and open to the public at large, where you can get tours of the space and its equipment, ask questions about the space, see what business we conduct, and so forth. If you were curious about Hacksburg but didn’t know where to start, tonight’s the night to stop by!
