Our monthly board meeting is tonight Wednesday December 11th at 7pm. Come on down to see the inner workings of AHA! We have 15 minutes at the beginning for open discussion. We’d love to hear feedback from you!
We are glad to bring you the upcoming events for December! On top of our regularly occuring classes, we are super excited to be holding a few more holiday themed classes! Our new classes will let you learn how to craft stamps to make cards and decorate gift bags, and we will also be making and messing around with CHOCOLATE!!! Some of our other classes will have holiday options as well, such a soldering a tree or menorah kit.
Other interesting workshops we have this month is our Insect Tasting, where we will be trying to break down barriers of what is gross, and how courageous and open-minded we are. We also have a super awesome amazing Virtual Reality Hacking event, which will be ongoing throughout the month, hosted by Khevna!
Our hours for the holidays may be tricky, so we will announce when and if we will be open to the public from 12/24-12/31.
Just a reminder we have open build night Thursday nights! All hands Active is open from 2pm to 10pm.
Come on down and make some art or make some holiday cards. No supplies necessary!
For more details check out this facebook link or show up.
Come check out 3d scanning and printing at the downtown Ann Arbor Library location this Saturday November 30th from 2pm – 4pm. We can scan you, create a 3d model of you using off the self components and we’ll be demonstrating 3D printing.
For more information check out this link.
We hope to see you there!
All Hands Active is going to be closed this weekend to the public due to the holiday. We’ll resume normal hours next week.
Just a reminder one benefit of membership is 24/7 access! If you are considering joining as a member feel free to stop by and ask about membership or join our mailing list.
The Neutral Zone stopped by to take a tour of our space today. We gave them a quick tour and showed them an Oculus Rift, the laser cutter and 3d scanning among other things that we have down in the shop.
For your gif enjoyment see the below images from tonight.

Updated: Whoops, fixed the dates!
Elections for the next Board of Directors are coming up! Beginning today is the nomination period for prospective board members.
We have compiled a list of goals we have for the next board here: The Next 6 Months. If you think you can help us achieve those goals, please consider running for the board! The board term is six months long, and you must remain a member in good standing during this period.
Here’s the breakdown of important dates for elections:
- Today – October 17 at 11:59PM: People can start nominating themselves or others over the ahashop_members at googlegroups.com mailing list.
- October 17 at 11:59PM – NOMINATIONS: If you nominate yourself or wish to accept someone else’s nomination, send an email explicitly and clearly stating that you are running to board at allhandsactive.com before midnight! Any confirmed nominees might also want to send a note to the ahashop_members at googlegroups.com list so that people know they are running. The current board will also send out periodical reminders of confirmed nominees as we collect them.
- October 18 – October 24 at 7:00PM – ABSENTEE VOTING: If you know that you are unable to make it to the voting party at AHA on the evening of the 24th, let us know ASAP and we will do our best to accommodate your vote with an alternate voting procedure.
- October 24 at 7:00PM until 10:00PM – ELECTIONS: We host a themed Build Night in which the goal is to build a board! Converge on AHA at 7:00PM, eat potluck-style foods, and cast your ballot. We will tally votes at 10:00PM.
- October 25 at Midnight: New board is put in place!
We will be using an instant-runoff-style vote. You will assign each nominee a number from 1 to N (N being the number of nominees we have by the end of the 17th). Higher numbers represent the nominees you favor most, with 1 being your least-favored. We will add up all of your ranking values and pick the five highest-scoring nominees, who will become the next board.
If you are a fully-paid Standard Member ($50), Reduced Membership Member ($20), or 4 ‘n’ 4 Staff Member ($0) in October, you are entitled to one vote. You may become a member at any time up until the 24th if you would like to be counted for this election.
And here’s the current board:
