Learn To Make Unique Keepsakes At TechShop Exhibition

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – You may never have thought about branding your own steak or making custom chocolates, but you can learn do those things at Pittsburgh's TechShop next weekend.

Local studio and "playground for creativity" TechShop is hosting a free exhibition Saturday, June 22.

Saturday, TechShop is opening its doors to the public and will feature work from local designers, restaurants and businesses – in addition to offering low-cost workshops.

The classes will teach participants how to make unique items such as laser etched beer mugs, vacuum formed chocolate molds, custom branding irons or a Japanese toolbox that will cost about half the price of regular classes at $20 to $40.

TechShop, which has locations all over the country, offers a variety of classes, including computer illustration, laser cutting, arts, welding and metalwork – which can range from $40 to $100. It also offers monthly memberships, in which members get unlimited access to tools.
