Event Details

Take a MakeCation at the Parachute Factory in Las Vegas, NM!


The Parachute Factory is celebrating two years as northern New Mexico’s leading makerspace, with workshops, community events, and discussions on the future of maker culture. Join us from Halloween through Dia de los Muertos, with a dynamic community of makers, fixers and hackers. Parachute Factory founder, Mariano Ulibarri, will be leading the weekend with his experienced crew. Bring your experiences & skills to share, learn something new, join our community events, and help us celebrate our third year of making in the mountains of New Mexico.


We will be kicking things off on Friday with a very special Halloween installment of Parachute Factory's FIXIT Friday - an event where locals bring in broken items to be repaired by Parachute Factory FIXIT volunteers. 


On Saturday participants will have several workshops and lectures to choose from including:

  • 3D Printing and Scanning
  • Intro to Arduino
  • Laser Cutting Primer
  • Which Microcontroller for What Project?
  • CAD Design for Absolute Beginners
  • Storefront Lecture Series: The Role of a Community Makerspace

To close things out on Sunday we will be hosting our third annual "DIA de DIY" event. Participants will take part in Parachute Factory's biggest community event to date! This multi-generational day of making celebrates the start of Parachute Factory's third year as a community makerspace. We will be sharing some of our very best workshops and projects from the past two years with the Las Vegas, NM community. There will be 3D printing, laser cutting, drones, sewing, printmaking, and more!

Organizer

Mariano Ulibarri

Mariano, a fourth generation photographer and lifelong maker, spent a good portion of his life traveling and living abroad, including a teaching stint in Tokyo, Japan. Along with his wife Keri, son Mateo, and daughter Mia Mariano returned to his hometown of Las Vegas, New Mexico to pursue his MA in Media Arts and Technology at New Mexico Highlands University. In merging his love of photography with interactive multimedia, Mariano was introduced to a new and exciting approach to his craft, one that would define the path of his graduate studies. His newfound passion would lay the foundation for his establishment of the Parachute Factory Makerspace, a prolific outlet for creativity and technology in the community of Las Vegas.Parachute Factory and Curiosity Hacked Guild 005 have established “Lil” Las Vegas, New Mexico as a legitimate maker’s community. He enjoys spending his free time with his wife and son, as well as modifying mopeds, and of course, tinkering with and hacking electronics.
