Mentors make themselves available to help members solve their problems through helpful advice (which is free and plentiful), by teaching a class (which has a class fee) or by rolling up their sleeves and mentoring a single member or two through a new skill (which may involve an hourly charge).
Mentors of the space are listed as such in their Meetup Profile with a listing of their skill sets and the classes they teach. Each mentor MAY also be available for personal mentoring by the hour.
Classes may be attended by anyone. No membership is required.
Hammerspace advertises and provides the space, and shares the class fee with the instructor via PayPal at the end of each class completed. The instructor can provide consumables for each class or provide Hammerspace with an advance part list so that every participant can purchase their own supplies from the Hammerspace Store at the time of the class.
There is no really clear boundary on the types of classes that may be taught here in Hammerspace.
Knitting, robotics, silk-screening, monster making to black smithing and lock smithing. You can learn it all here.
Classes begin at about $30 and may range up to several hundred dollars if the supplies and project are large, costly or simply ambitious. New classes are added weekly.
Through these classes, workshops, collaborative projects, and other activities, we want to encourage research, knowledge exchange, learning, and mentoring in a safe space. We provide an educational space for teaching practical skills and theory of technology, science, and art. We provide work space, storage, and other resources for projects related to art, science, and technology that will benefit the individual members' personal growth in their fields of interest, encouraging the individual members to share their projects and knowledge for the betterment of society through art, science and technology.
