Making Process Portfolio -reflections 

This making process was a process of trial and error. The hardest part was trying to figure out how to fit learning guitar on my own into my busy full time student part time sales associate schedule. I constantly found myself setting it on the back burner time and time again saying that I’ll get…

Makerspace visit #3 and it’s complications!

I decide to utilize the makerspace on campus after a fifty fifty split of my feelings towards these experiences, I’ve come to the conclusion that it is not a very welcoming place.

D.I.Y Pamphlet 4/3 hole stitch!

This weeks project included creating a pamphlet stitched booklet. One with four holes and one with three. I really have no idea what I’d use this skill for now that I’ve learned it but I am a creative so it is now stored into my creative bank to be brought up one random day. I…

3D Printing and TinkerCad

Recently I took a tour of Syracuse University makerspace and learned how to 3D print in theory. We learned how to operate a website called tinkercad in which we can create our own 3D designs and prototypes. Which is actually pretty nifty that someone took the time to make something like this available to everyone…
