Create one project that makes, modifies, or repairs an everyday object or process.
What would you make if you had no limits?
A decade ago, you needed passion, expertise, and money to transform even the simplest ideas into real objects. Now you just need passion. We have unprecedented access to collaboration, materials, and knowledge, and the desire to actively create in the world has never been stronger.
But where to start? In this class, Mark Frauenfelder—legendary maker, creator, and founder of Boing Boing and MAKE magazine—introduces the fundamental world of Making and guides you in transforming your curiosity into a DIY project that makes, modifies, or repairs an everyday object in your life.
While this one-hour class is structured for a true beginner, you'll find a wealth of ideas no matter your background or knowledge. Filled with countless example projects, personal anecdotes, creative-thinking prompts, tool know-how, and a peanut-butter project that has our mind spinning, this class is designed to inspire and spark conversation.
It's a class for everyone who believes in possibility, in practice, and in fun.
