Santa’s Workshop on Maui

Do you have a special gift or family heirloom item that you have been wanting to make? Maui Makers has some of Santa’s Elves available that are willing to enable you to make that happen this year and Santa is willing to loan you his Maui workshop as a place to make them in.

There will be a $20 charge for each of the working sessions. Come to as many as you like!

Our space is the best equipped member supported community workshop on Maui. We have about 2000 sq ft of tools and work benches. Our member volunteers (“Elves”) are well versed in creating projects with our tools and we will guide you. Checkout the list of our tools on our website: Maui Makers Shop Equipment

We will start with planning sessions on Saturday Nov.18 and Sunday Nov.19 from 12:30 to 430p.
Swing by for an hour or so, check out our space and run your idea past us to verify we can assist you and schedule your future work time.
Tuesday evening Nov.21 from 6:30 to 8:30 will be another planning time, if evenings are better for you.

Then you have a couple of weeks to gather your materials and finalize your design.

The actual work days will be in December. Saturday and Sunday afternoons and Tuesday and Thursday evenings, depending on what kind of tooling your project requires.

The Saturday afternoons in December will be set aside for noisy shop projects, although others will be able to use the Space as well, if they are able to cope with noise and dust.
The Sunday afternoons in December will be set aside for the quieter craft type projects, as well as the quieter shop activities like painting and glue-ups.
Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 in December will focus on 3D printing, and
Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 will be set aside for electronic and micro-processor projects.

Each of the Sunday afternoons will have a different focus:

Dec.3 – EggBot Design and Bead Crafting

Dec.10 – Leather Working, Wood Burning and Wire Frame Soldering

Dec.17 – Electronics, Arduino, and colored LEDs and Lamp Making

During each of these designated work periods, we will have a number of “Elvish” expert mentors on hand to show you how to use the tools safely and to provide any assistance that you may be require.
