TechShop SF presents: College of Lockpicking
Wednesday, May 23, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, United States
You can pick your friends.
You can pick your beer.
But can you pick... a Lock?
Join us on Wednesday, May 23rd, From 7-9pm as we embark on an ancient mechanical adventure to explore the inner workings of a modern lock, first developed by the Mesopotamians and Egyptians over 4000 years ago. Led by lockpickers Eric Michaud and Jamie Schwettmann, this workshop will cover - soup to nuts - everything you need to know about how common locks work... and how to pick them open.
Whether you're a complete novice curious to find out what pin-tumbler really means, a homeowner protecting your family's treasures, or a veteran lockpicker with questions about advanced locks and techniques, this event is for you! With 2 solid hours of history, mechanical diagrams ("lock pr0n"), and hands-on lockpicking instruction... first we'll open your minds, and then we'll open some locks!
To properly learn this ancient art, you'll need the proper tools. By registering for a ticket with a lockpick set, this guarantees you a seat at the workshop, and reserves - all for you - a brand-new 10-piece custom lockpick set by Southern Specialties, hand-picked by Eric and Jamie to maximize utility for beginners and locksport enthusiasts alike, and offered for only $30.
If you already have some picks you're itching to practice with, you can bring them along, and your workshop cost is only $50!
