Here at DIYcave we want to hear from you.  What classes would you like to take?  What are your interests?  Do you have a group or friends that we could tailor a class for? Let us know by sending an email or filling out our survey.  We look forward to hearing from you!

  • Benjo

    Electronics! I’ve been struggling to do some high voltage DIY projects, and would LOVE some advice and another pair of eyes on my work.

    • We’d like to hear about the projects you’re working on. Email us at info@diycave.com and tell us what you’re up to.

  • Furniture refinishing – especially staining. I’m more interested in real finishes vs. shabby chic.

    • Sara- Furniture Refinishing will be a great class. We’ll get one set up in the coming months.

  • Bigjoe

    I have a 3×3 cnc, and would love to learn more. Cutting thin sheets of metal, and flipping projects are just 2 of the things I want to learn about. Not to mention just checking to make sure Im currently doing everything correctly…

  • Kevin Colussi

    I’m interested in making toys for my kids (12,15,16) that keep them outside off devices… Projects like blow guns, air cannons, trebuchet, etc… Projects that allow them to use more tools in the shop and make fun projects… Wed. after early release from school 2:pm would be a great time for the class… 🙂

    Also my daughter needs access to a sewing area for making a quilt….

    Keep up the good work!

    • Kevin,
      Those are great project ideas and we think the kids would have a blast working on them and using them. We are currently insured for members 18 and older but we’re working on providing access to the shop for younger makers. And classes like the ones you mentioned will definitely go on our list!

  • Sarah Nichols

    I would love to have some classes I could bring a group of interested and motivated middle schoolers to!

    • Sarah,
      We would love that as well. We’re pursuing the possibility of allowing access to DIYcave to members younger than 18. The insurance aspect of a shop like ours is challenging for us AND our insurance company. There are no standards currently in place for Makerspaces but we’re all working on it! We’ll contact you to talk more about it.

  • Guitar making, please.

  • Arla

    I would like to take a class on how to make Wire wrapped jewelry. Thank you

    • Girlyschmoo

      Hi Arla – Just the class for you is coming up August 20th!

  • Caitlin Marjorie

    Cabinet building!! I want to build cabinets for my kitchen! Also would like to build bee hives.

    • Caitlin,
      In July, we’ll be starting up some classes for cabinet building. The first one will be a basic intro and another class that’s in the works will be a series that covers the entire process of building a cabinet from design to installation. Stay tuned!

  • Hammand Saah

    Sculpture welding. How cool would it be for the DIYcave to have a sculpture installation somewhere in Bend? A project for the DIYcave. Perhaps a series of classes to produce a large work of art for a public installation.

  • Jesica Carleton

    Yard art sculpture, I’d love to do a multi-session class where we create a piece. Also, I do mosaic art, but need to learn more about how to make them weather proof (I’m signing up for the class in August so I can pick her brain). Sewing machine cleaning, maintenance, and repair.

  • Basic woodworking class for parent and child. Bookshelves? Tables? Sculptures? Toys (marble runs?). Thanks for asking!

  • des101

    It would be great to learn how to tile, i.e. how to tile a floor or shower. That would be awesome!

  • Grande Fan

    Would like a TIG welding class in winter/spring 2016 (for my husband)

  • Bob Seay

    I would like to learn about relief wood carving, tools needed etc.

  • Lesa Hill

    A friend of mine took the fused glass garden stake class, and I would love to take that if it’s offered again.

  • joyce becker

    I would love to add enameling to my jewelry / metal earrings. Currently paint them but enamel requires heat! 🙂 (and instructions) Thanks.
