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.

Make A Coptic Notebook – Virtual Learning!

Makers,

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!

This class will be presented virtually via Zoom and class connection information will be sent out prior to the class.

You must purchase supplies for this class.  Supply list and costs can be found here: https://wunder-kammer.com/class-supplies/. After purchasing, you will need to email info@twinstatemakerspaces.org for pick up at the Claremont MakerSpace and to coordinate a tour.  This class will occur April 11th at 6 PM. Learn more and register here.

TwinState MakerSpaces, Inc. Announces James St. Martin and Bryan Phaneuf as the Spring 2021 Artists In Residence

TwinState MakerSpaces, Inc. Announces James St. Martin and Bryan Phaneuf as the Spring 2021 Artists In Residence

 

TwinState MakerSpaces, Inc., the nonprofit organization that operates the Claremont MakerSpace, in Claremont, New Hampshire is pleased to announce James St Martin and Bryan Phaneuf as our March / April Artists in Residence.  James and Bryan operate Doghouse Arcades, a small Claremont, New Hampshire based business specializing in Home Arcade and Virtual Pinball cabinetry and machines. 

 

James and Bryan bring a fun and entertaining project to The Claremont MakerSpace through their home arcade business. As many of us have been spending so much more time at home over the past year, we can attest to the need for new ways to keep occupied. What better way than having your very own pinball or arcade set up?” said Brendan Dangelo, Director of Education at the Claremont MakerSpace.  “The Artist in Residence program provides an opportunity to showcase the versatility of the Claremont MakerSpace and the creativity of our local community of makers.  James and Bryan will utilize many of our high tech tools to expand into a new line – a collapsible and modular skeeball system”.

 

James St. Martin officially started Doghouse Arcades in November, 2020, but the idea has long been his dream. The business, named in honor of his father who passed away from cancer, is a nod to a tendency to take on “wild projects” and end up “in the doghouse.” His father’s love for pinball is another way in which St. Martin makes and creates in his memory.

 

CMS provides a large space to really spread out for our projects as needed with a variety of accessible tools right at our fingertips. The Artist in Residency will be a great way for us to produce an open source and free to the community product that we would have otherwise not been able to make” said St. Martin.  Once completed, the project will be on display at The Claremont MakerSpace and will be available to be viewed by the public, by appointment.
