Four Directions School Tuesdays 1-3 pm
I have series of 2 hour mini-workshops planned for Four Directions School starting tomorrow afternoon at the Makerspace and wanted to get a thread going on it.
Every Tuesday 1 - 3 PM from Feb 7 to April 18 inclusive, with Spring Break off (March 21 and 28).
9 students max. with one support worker min. (plus me)
Doing mini-workshops (laser live-hinge wallet, vinyl cut decal, other) using a mix of fab shop, wood shop, laser, design lab, lounge. No hackroom.
I have proposed to them that the school furnish the Kamloops Makerspace with a $500/month honorarium to cover the shop use.
I am paid through the Community Arts Council as an Outreach Artist.
That’s the plan. I hope this meets with general approval and I do apologize for the lack of notice - just getting final go-aheads now and its been a super busy week.
Let me know your thoughts.
@Vaughn I like it. The timing works well following the cleanup on Maker Monday
That went really well today:
Had 9 students and their teacher in from Four Directions School from 1-3pm. Did a live hinge laser wallet each, sanded and finished in the woodshop, then added their initials in computer cut vinyl in the @Design-Lab.
Thanks to everyone who makes the space work.
Update: this programme went well. Four Directions students did mini builds each afternoon for the last 10 weeks on Tuesdays. The Clay Space was a big hit with them, as was laser-wallets, airbrushed t-shirts, vinyl decals and watching the 3d printer!
The program raised $675 for the Space ($75 x 9 visits). Cheque was sent last week ( @Grant-Fraser watch for it in the mail!)
