MAKE & TAKE CLASSES
Fab Lab Tulsa supports a series of staff-led project-based classes that are accessible to members and non-members alike. Make & Take Classes introduce novice makers to digital design and fabrication through hands-on, start-to-finish projects in a single class session. Included with the class fee, students are provided with computing resources, software instruction, materials, and hands-on exposure to computer-controlled machinery. Students gain an understanding of digital fabrication and leave the class with their own take-home custom project.
Make & Take classes are held Saturdays with new subjects and projects introduced every month. View the current Make & Take classes below:
