3D Print Workshop at a library Answered

We've had a 3D printer at our library for about 6 months now. We would love to offer workshops on how to use software like Tinkercad or 123D to create your own designs.

We are currently looking for someone to lead the workshop. Any ideas where we could connect with someone?

We are located in Marin County, right next to San Francisco: http://www.beltiblibrary.org/

Many thanks for any suggestions on forums, people to reach out to or even workshop ideas.

Wow sounds lovely!! is your library of a highschool or university? I held some workshop as a student presenter in my University, and if there is anything i learn, that is the workshop design really depends on the audience....i am from Hong Kong though, i probably cant help your workshop physically, just trying to help the discussion get started.

I did. But isn't access by invitation only or restricted in some other way?
