The Tim VanSant Makership LVL1's Makership Program

Note: This program is funded completely through donations and NOT through our membership dues.

  • We currently have enough funds to offer a Makership. Please submit an application to become a member of LVL1! See our treasurer, make a donation.
  • Members: please talk up the Makership to potential new members. Makerships are a good way to interest minorities and women in LVL1. Emphasize the experience and the opportunity. Getting a project done is less important.
  • Makership Application Deadline is the last day of each month @ 11:59 PM.
  • Submit your project for a chance to win 3 months of LVL1 membership and a $100 reimbursement toward your project expenses.
  • Apply at www.lvl1.org/makership. Also, send any questions about how to submit a successful application to www.lvl1.org/makership. We want to award a Makership!
  • If your application is not approved, PLEASE revise and resubmit next month.
  • If you would like to donate ($5/mo) to this worthy cause, see one of the directors and we can set you up!

Upcoming Events

Workshop: Holy sheet, metal!

Sat, Mar 11, 2023, 1:00 PM EST

  • This will be a "drinking from the firehose" type of class. I will be

attempting to dump as much of my knowledge of sheet metal tools and processes as I can in an afternoon. This is not a formal training, my way of doing things may not match the official "correct" way of doing things, but have worked for me. You will finish with a certified "just enough to be dangerous" level of knowledge.
