Towards the end of my workshop, a student disappeared and I thought he just left. Later he came to show me that he had taken his Zen Tangle drawing and used a laser cutter to etch the artwork into a piece of wood. All I could say was, 'WOW. Can you do that for me?
Thanks to the valuable maker space and the openness of the AME program to invite Donna to teach, she and the student were able to engage each other in a reciprocal teaching and learning experience through their shared love of art.
Marty, another adventurous Mirabella at ASU resident, headed to the Hayden Library maker space to solve a very real problem: a tipsy coffee cup.
What wonderfully creative, solution-oriented learners we have in the community! I can’t wait to see what they’ll come up with next!
My favorite travel mug had a tendency to tip over, so I thought I could use the makerspace to 3D print a cup holder to make it more stable. I did a rough design and made an appointment to carry out my plan. The makerspace provided the software to create the design and a knowledgeable and patient guide to walk me through the steps. He showed me out to submit the finished design and told me they would let me know when it was ready. Within a few days I was able to get it and put it to a test. It works perfectly!
