Classes to benefit the Makerspace remodel

I would be down. I think offering a home maintenance/home repair classes to the public would be great for the community. We should look into advertising these types of classes in the Wichita’s parks and rec activity guide that is offered quarterly.

I sat at the table with her at a marketing event. She hates doing that magazine and does want to add additional information to it.

I am more than happy to teach free classes in ceramics, just say when and now many.

I don’t think the ceramics lab can be open initially. Are there some classes that you could do in the classroom?

Sorry, can’t think of any.

I will see what we might be able to do… anyone from ceramics with ideas?

What about a hand building class? We can make covers for the tables

Jenisa has been building small toad habitats. I’m going to try to get her to gather data on them. We could also try to get her to make a how to video, and kids can gather and validate data between each other. Perhaps put some habitats at the makerspace. “Publish” their research even lol.

We…and I mean THE GRANDS

love to “rescue” and “rehabilitate” our guests a few days before sending them off into the wild with a kiss. Toads are GREAT! I’m missing the squeals of excitement…of the children…not the toads.

I told Tobias about this and he’s in. I discovered this in the back yard after my bath this evening

If we have a kit how will we be reimbursed for supplies? As the standing rules are written now, kit fees must be in the price of the class.

Well the makerspace here in town has like a take-n-make thing. Where they have kits you buy from them and then take them home bn and assemble them. Leatherwork would be pretty easy with the lasercutter, electronics would be easy if they had a soldering iron, a basic knitting kit would be pretty easy. Like a bookmark.

So this would be separate from a class and directly come from MakeICT, we just help kit them.

What if they picked up their kit, then there was a Zoom class scheduled to assemble it?

That would be a way to do classes before we can open… hmmmm

I can teach my classes via zoom.

Also, I could do a “How to make better power points.”

I don’t know if I brought this up before but when D and I were art students we had to take this class called art forum.

Each week a different artist would come in and have a 30 min presentation on their art and process, which always went ten minutes long. Then there would be a short QandA after.

The hardest part about starting this at MakeICT over Zoom would be getting members to attend.

I could teach a course on basic photographic lighting, if there is enough interest.
