A great time was had by all. Several interesting projects were shown off.
There was a demo on how to make a stamp from a wood block.
Yesterday we experimented with wooden ink stamps. The stamps are made using the CNC cutter and we were hand pressing the stamps. This is incredibly fun and I’m pretty sure some of will be making more! I did a demo of making a stamp and I made up my own business card.
Sarah was showing off her arduino project. As you can see she’d been 3D printing, soldering, breadboarding and programming. Her project is a haptic feedback system.
We’ve got a sewing machine. I had no idea how much fun these things were!
In the pictures below we are doing freehand sewing. You flip a couple of switches and then you are able to move the fabric manually in any direction.
We will post the manual and instructions later.
I’ve been poking around and this might be “KENMORE SEWING MACHINE 158.14100” and it may be from the 60s.
Or it’s something not very far off from this:
One of the advantages of being on Bank Street is Glowfair! This year we had tonnes of fun!
I made up a stamp business card for the makerspace.
