Hi, I'm Rob!

(Robert Kirberich) #1


I just joined the space and haven’t even had time to come down yet, hopefully I’ll make it for the open evening this week :slight_smile:

I’ve been a hobbyist maker for a while, playing around mostly with 3d printing, electronics, and PCB design. I’m a software engineer, but I’m currently switching jobs to get into hardware and making full-time.

I’m also super curious about woodworking and metalworking, which I learned the hard way isn’t the best to do at home unless you like the taste of sawdust, so I’m very excited to get into that at the makerspace!

Hi Rob, welcome to Makerspace!

You can sign up here for the woodwork induction waiting list - it looks long I don’t think it’s a bad as it looks. https://discourse.southlondonmakerspace.org/t/wood-workshop-foundation-induction-waiting-list/5002

And if you go to this page and set it to “watching” (click on empty circle at the top) then you should get an email when new induction sessions are added. https://discourse.southlondonmakerspace.org/c/admin/induction-sessions

Happy making!

Hi Sarah!

Thank you for the intro and the pointers, I added myself to the waiting list :slight_smile:

Can’t wait to get started!

No problem, did you see this one? I think they might not be using the waiting list any more sorry I’m a bit out of date - feel free to add yourself to this one if you can make the time.

Thanks yeah I did :slight_smile: I’ll add myself there if it looks like there’s some space but don’t want to jump the queue :smiley:

The waiting list has been more or less scrapped, so add your name and see you on Sunday!

Fair enough, thanks for the heads up! See you on Sunday!
