Makers,

We have three classes with registration deadlines of 4/1/21.  Learn more on how to reserve your spot below!

 

Quilting Machine Training

April 1st, 5:30 PM

The Claremont MakerSpace’s quilting machine is a great tool for creative, efficient quilting! In this hands-on training session, participants will learn how to set up a project on the quilting machine and utilize its standard features. Participants of this class will have the opportunity to sign up for a follow-up certification session, so that they may use the machine on their own.

 

Make A Coptic Notebook

April 11th, 6 PM

Create a notebook as adventurous as you. This traveler’s notebook uses the Coptic binding method. This unique binding method is one of the oldest in human history, dating back as early as the second century. It allows the book to lay flat when opened to any page, making it great for sketchbooks. Notebook measures 5.75” x 8.75” when done. Your book boards will have been made on the MakerSpace’s laser cutter. Follow along virtually as you construct the notebook. Sign up deadline is 4/1/21!

 

Dream it, Make it, Print it (Ages 8 – 13)

April 1 – April 20 at 4:30 PM

Over four sessions, participants learn how to use a CAD program to create their very own designs. Learn about the engineering design process and make your own original pieces in Tinkercad. We’ll then print your designs on our 3D printers. Projects can be mailed to you! Recommended ages 8 and up. Should be comfortable using a computer mouse and keyboard.

Natural Ink Making

Makers,

Before the mid-19th century, dyes and paints were made from plant and mineral (and occasionally animal!) sources. Discover the world of natural color in our landscape, as we discuss historical ink-making, and learn to make a permanent black ink from easily accessible natural materials.

We will discuss the chemistry behind iron-tannin inks, the most widely used ink historically, and create our own indelible drawing and writing inks from pomegranate skins. Students will develop skills for identifying tannin sources in the environment, and be able to take this knowledge with them to continue to explore natural color sources. No previous experience necessary, this class is suitable for older teens and adults.

Note – Registration closes 3/30/2021!

This class will be presented free via Zoom and will occur on April 8th at 6 PM. Register here.
