Lighthouse Writers Workshop
1515 Race St, Denver, Colorado 80206
For anyone who has ever felt compelled to discover what lies just behind that locked door, this night is for you. Join Atlas Obscura Society Denver to learn about the competitive world of locksport, an abbreviated history of seminal moments in lock picking, and—of course—how to get started picking your own. Our expert will demonstrate his impressive skill set while sharing the tricks of the trade.

In keeping with the ethics of locksport, we ask that whatever lock picking skills you do acquire from this workshop, you use for good not bad, and that you never pick a working lock.

By the end of this workshop, attendees will:

Learn how to pick basic locks through instruction and hands-on practice.
Gain experience on more advanced locks using our expert's own diverse lock library.
Acquire their very own lock-picking set to take home and continue practicing on.
Develop an understanding of the history, design and functionality of the most common locks in North America: Pin Tumblers, Wafers, and Disc Detainers.
Earn a new appreciation for the long history of security engineering.
