There's a makerspace in Gwinnett county, called Geekspace Gwinnett. They are blooming nicely and have a Meetup Page for future meetings. I've been to a couple of events there.

    BONUS ROUND! We are adding extra cosplay nights in preparation for DragonCon.

    You may bring any costumes you are working on for advice, critique, or help solving problems. Or maybe you just want some company while you work! There are 2 sewing machines also available for use at the space (Bring your own thread to match). This workshop is not limited to sewing... whether you are building, painting, sewing, or simply designing this is your workshop! This is hosted my Mendy and Tamara, two members that are experienced in different cosplay techniques. They will also be bringing their own projects to work on if you are curious.

    This workshop will be FREE for Geekspace Gwinnett members, and $5 for non members. Feel free to bring snacks, drinks, and your imagination.

    This workshop will be FREE for Geekspace Gwinnett members, and $5 for non members. Feel free to bring snacks, drinks, and your imagination.

    Tamara will teach you introductions to yarn-brushing techniques and how to construct the tufts into a tail. This is a BYOY (Bring your own Yarn) event. Yarn must be 100% acrylic for this project. A nice fat yarn, such as the one in the picture below, works the best. You may find this basic yarn at any craft store or Walmart. Limited yarn will be available at the space for purchasing in case your forget for an additional $5. You may also bring your own flat iron hair straightener if you'd like to work faster.

    Class is taught by cosplayer TamaraPaints

    **** Please note: this class will be a pre-requisite for brushed yarn wig making, coming soon!
