The Makerspace 01 program is meant to introduce participants to a number of different technologies available at The Makery and in other makerspace environments. Participants will learn design with Inkscape ( an open source program that works like Adobe Illustrator ), RDWorks, laser cutting functionality and design, 3D printing basics and CNC basics. Each technology will introduce a new smaller project. We will also use woodworking as needed, hand tools and artistic finishing techniques (painting, staining, collage, glass, sculpture, etc.). This program is meant to introduce the rich environment of a makerspace in preparation for an on-going Maker Club experience in which participants can work on projects of their choice with expert guidance.
