Details: This will be the second Build Night that we’re hosting – and we’ll be well on our way to Instructables Sponsorship. They’re sending us Sugru, we get to play with it. Bring lots of ideas!

This is the next step in getting full Instructables Sponsorship – which would be kinda awesome for the space – and since there’s a limited number of sponsorships available, I’d like to get in sooner as opposed to later.

Instructables is sponsoring monthly build nights at makerspaces and hackerspaces around the world. Each month is a different theme and we will send you materials to run a workshop at your space. We are partnering with sugru for our July 2013 build night. Sugru is the exciting new self-setting rubber that can be formed by hand. It molds like play-dough, bonds to almost anything and turns into a strong, flexible silicone rubber overnight. Sign up for the July build night and we will ship you several packages of sugru to experiment with. Details below (please read all the information).


  1. Host a Build Night: pick a night in July (any night) to host the sugru build night. At the event experiment and play with sugru.
  2. Post Five Instructables: post 5 Instructables using Sugru. This can include: making products more ergonomic, simple fixes, or more advanced uses. You have 1 week after your build night to post these projects. Anyone from your space is welcome to post an Instructable that counts towards the 5. (Not posting these Instructables may affect your chances to participate in future build nights).
  3. Brownie Points (not required): after the build night post a forum topic on Instructables about your event. Include pictures, stories, etc… Here are two examples from the May build night:Noisebridge and Makers Local 256. We may even feature your photo on the homepage.

Use the build night as a launch pad to bring your makerspace towards Instructables sponsorship. Individual projects can be included towards the sponsorship AKA get people to post new Instructables to count towards sponsorship.

We have 100 spaces available and it’s first come first serve. Please only sign up if you are able to complete the requirements listed above. You must be associated with a formal makerspace or hackerspace to participate. SIGN UP HERE.
