General Induction - Fabrication Lab ARCHIVED

The Following is a 1st draft of the slideshow/ session plan for the General Induction. eventually this will be developed as a Powerpoint style slideshow with and an accompanying voice over narration.

Each session will start with the facilitator welcoming the participants individually and checkin them into Eventbrite When its time to begin the facilitator will welcome the group to the Fabrication Lab and acknowledge the traditional owners

I’d like to begin by acknowledging the Traditional Owners of the land on which we meet today, the Yaggera and Turrbal people and pay my respects to Elders past and present.

The Facilitator then introduces the slideshow

General intro to the space and our programs

The Edge

The Edge is State Library space for creativity, ideas and experimentation. There are regular programs, events, workshops, facilitated meetups and community lab times in the space on Level 1 as well as here on level 0.

Fabrication Lab

The Edge basement houses the Fabrication Lab, a creative space with a host of resources for you to bring your creative visions to life. It is an open access community makerspace with equipment and tools available to anyone with a creative idea. If you have a hobby, project, assignment or an idea for a business that requires a laser cutter, soldering station, 3D printer, sewing machine or CNC Router, The Edge’s Fabrication Lab can help. You just have to be over 16, wear covered footwear and have completed the relevant safety inductions.
