But can you pick… a Lock?
Join us on Tuesday, March 5th, from 7-9pm at Machine Project 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 lockpicker Eric Michaud, 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 will need the proper tools. By registering for a lockpick set along with your workshop ticket, this reserves – all for you – a brand-new College of Lockpicking 10-piece Custom Lockpick Set made entirely in the USA, hand-picked by College of Lockpicking faculty to maximize utility for beginners and locksport enthusiasts alike, and offered for only $30. And of course, you get to take it home for practice after the event. :)
If you already have some picks you’re itching to practice with, you can bring them along and your workshop cost is only $30!
