    About SC Brown:

    SC Brown has been crafting fine jewelry since 1975.  Most of his pieces reflect historical designs to some degree with some modern elements added in.  As a gemstone specialist his pieces often include rare gems that the average customer hasn’t seen before.  He has taught gold and silversmith at various schools and is a consultant to the industry.

    About the class:

    This class will introduce jewelry craft methods and tools to students in a classroom setting under direction from a professional jeweler with more than 40 years of experience.

    Through guided projects and skill building demonstrations, students will develop skills that will allow them to further pursue jewelry making as a hobby or career.

    Students will create one or two pieces during the class, depending on any previous experience they may have.  Each piece they make will involve various techniques designed to educate them in design and fabrication, and that they can use on their own, as they continue to develop new skills.  Jewelry 1 is a fabrication class where flat non ferrous metals are sawn, filed, hammered, shaped, soldered, and polished by hand. 

    Graduates from this class will be able to take Sam's new Jewelry Intermediate class.

    This introductory software class is a first look at 3D modeling with computer assisted design (CAD) in Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software package. Free to use for hobbyists, Fusion 360 is the first step in bringing designs to life via 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC, or other manufacturing techniques.

    This class will run two consecutive days and cover foundational concepts and tools used in 3D design, as well as briefly expounding on a few more advanced tools and techniques. By the end of the second session each student will have a file finished and prepared for 3D printing. This class is excellent preparation for more advanced 180 Studios fabrication classes (3D printing, Shopbot CNC, laser cutting, etc.).

    180 Studios presents a new type of welding class.  Tig welding brought to you by Virginia Harrison.  In this class you will learn the basics of tig welding, from welding 2 pieces of metal together.  Practicing angle welds, and grinding.

    One of the greatest advantages of TIG welding is the amount of control it allows. A welder can control heat and amperage with precision using a foot or thumb remote control switch. The TIG welder is thin, which adds to the control a welder with excellent dexterity can have over the process.

    Great for art or industrial applications.

    No welding experience necessary, this can be your starting point into the world of welding.

You will learn from our business development  specialists Jula Pereira and Jeffrey Schmidt.  In addition to learning from the instructors, a portion of the workshop will be dedicated to each class member speaking briefly about their own idea/business, and what they want to accomplish before next meeting.  As well as what they might be able to do to help the fellow entrepreneurs in the room.

    This is an ongoing group that will meet once a month and will grow into a community.  This will help keep any good entrepreneurs accountable, and will help you reach the next step of your business.  This workshop will evolve overtime depending on the needs and wants of the community.  Each month we will have new information, and rotating speakers that will offer help and new types of knowledge.

    This is your chance to develop your next idea, finally start that online jewelry business, or to go from hobby artist to paid artist. Also, this is a great way to meet new people and make new connections.

    The first workshop will be designed to take a pulse of the entrepreneurship community to better understand our groups needs and wants for future meetups.  For this reason this first meeting will include a $20 discount.  Only a $5 food fee is required.

This class will help individuals learn to safely join two pieces of metal using MIG, one of the more popular welding techniques. The goal is to take the intimidation factor away and help individuals learn the basics of a valuable and exciting skillset. After a basic introduction to safety, the metal shop and its tools, and Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding, as well as fabrication processes, students may create a small metal sculpture to take home.

    Students will learn the basics to safely use the metal shop. It is designed to take the intimidation factor out of metal work, while teaching the proper safety and respect for the art and craft of welding and metalworking. By the end you will know what PPE means and you will learn how to MIG Weld! In addition students will gain experience on other common metal shop tools, such as chop saws, band saw, angle grinders, bench grinders, and you will know how to use them all safely.

    What To Bring: Close-Toed leather or canvas shoes. Long pants of cotton bases material, i.e. Denim or canvas or 100% cotton. No leggings or shorts please.

    Description of Class: Learn how to use a laser scanner to paint an organic image into your next 3d print. Great projects with the 3D scanner include: Creating exact replicas and copies of any object that the lasers can paint over on the surface. Scanning the human face or creating prosthetic limbs and apertures for the human body. This tool will build a strong bridge between the CAD design world and detailed natural objects. Your mind is the only limitation to what this tool can do for your next project! 

    What skills & tools will student learn: This course will go over the beginning of exposure to 3D animation, game engine creation, character design and the delicate operation of using this technology to construct an image into cyberspace from the real world. Students will operate the scanner and understand the limitations and the capabilities through the scan studio software.  The student will learn how the system works in depth and discover the modern day applications of reverse engineering and how it can provide a valuable tool for the next project! 


    What will student leave with? Operational knowledge and possibly an STL file of an object they brought to class! (wink wink)

Shortly after becoming a self employed dog walker and business owner in San Francisco, he found his first makerspace in 2011 while attending the Maker Faire. “Tech Shop” became his home for the next six years. After learning and teaching just about all the curriculum over that time due to missing instructors leaving the space, he became a true veteran by filling in for as many classes as he possibly could successfully training over 1,000 people of all ages and abilities. He then went onto other spaces to share his tribal knowledge at places like Tesla in Fremont and the PiShop program at Google HQ in Mountain View. He loves originality and spends a lot of his waking hours brainstorming about the next fun project; especially with his friends at 180 Studios.

    Learn how to use our newest 3D printer the "Form 2" from our very own Ky Faubion.  This 3D printer does not use standard filament but instead creates designs using a resin bath with laser light curing each layer producing ultra fine detail. 


    This class is for members that have already gone through the Fusion 360 class and have had some experience with 3D printing.  Use of this machine will only be for members that have taken this class and can prove that they can safely use this tool.  In this class we will learn how to properly set up an STL file in the software, prepare the tray for a print, load a file, level the printer, run a file and remove the print from the tray. After understanding how to run a print with a resin based material, the last portion will be seeing the print through its alcohol bath and curing it in ultra violet light for hardening.

    180 Studios presents a new type of welding class.  Tig welding brought to you by Virginia Harrison.  In this class you will learn the basics of tig welding, from welding 2 pieces of metal together.  Practicing angle welds, and grinding.

    One of the greatest advantages of TIG welding is the amount of control it allows. A welder can control heat and amperage with precision using a foot or thumb remote control switch. The TIG welder is thin, which adds to the control a welder with excellent dexterity can have over the process.

    Great for art or industrial applications.

    No welding experience necessary, this can be your starting point into the world of welding.
