Dublin Maker


I featured 091Labs at Dublin Maker 2014, on July the 26th, while presenting my “Mobile Pillow Alarm Clock” (aka “smart pillow”) project.

Dublin Maker is a festival where inventors/makers sourced through an open call, have an opportunity to showcase their creations ranging from tech to art, craft and electronics.

First Crafting Day – 10th of August


We’re trying something new at the Labs, and holding a crafting day. The idea is to have a day dedicated to some of our less technology-oriented pursuits. So this Saturday, the Labs should be open for most of the day, with some kind of crafting activity going on. The monthly knitting group will go ahead as usual, from 4 to 7. In addition, a group will be building a small mangonel, in the TNT (Totally Not Toys) workshop. Other events may be added. Everyone should feel free to stop by. If you have any questions, you can leave a comment or reach me at maraley42 [at] gmail [dot] com.

Wanted: Crafty People


The labs is looking to expand the kinds of workshops and events we offer, and so we’re hoping to run more crafting events. Ideally, we’d like to have a monthly crafting day, starting this August. Right now, we’re looking for people who might be interested in running workshops or demonstrations. If you’re interested, or have any questions, or have a particular craft you’d like to see at the craft days, let us know. You can contact me either through the mailing list, or at maraley42 [at] gmail [dot] com.
