TechShop Detroit #NAIAS

Are you creative?  Do you like to DIY?  I love creating things.  I would like to learn how to do more with my hands.  I may not have created anything, not yet but maybe one day I could.  TechShop is an awesome place for those that have ideas or don't.  It is a playground.  We need one here in Houston..hint, hint...
I had an awesome time learning...how to sandblast glass 
 how to make a pewter mold...(which I was scared to play with hot pewter)
You can bring your car and work on it yourself...they have a lift, tools, etc..(my brother would love this, he is a mechanic)
You can sketch, write, scribble, etc..your ideas on these big boards that are all around the walls. 
I learned how to attached this lights to a battery..I had too much fun making a star design. (creativeness in progress)
Ford and TechShop, Inc. have come together in a collaborative effort to open a brand new TechShop location in the Detroit area. We welcome all innovators, from backyard tinkerers to software engineers, to use our resources and bring an idea to life or invent the next big thing in automotive technology.

TechShop is a community based workshop and prototyping studio on a mission to democratize access to the tools of innovation. This brand new location is packed with cutting-edge tools, equipment, and computers loaded with design software featuring the Autodesk Design Suite. Most importantly, TechShop offers space to make, and the support and camaraderie of a community of makers.  (source:  http://www.techshop.ws/ts_detroit.html)
