    This is an introductory course on the basics of creating jewelry using precious metal clay techniques. Metal clay can be easily manipulated by hand just like familiar ceramic clay. However, when fired, the metal clay binding material vaporizes and the metal particulates sinter leaving a solid metal object.

     Metal clay objects may be easily formed by hand, created with commercially available press molds, 3D printed, or provided by the student. Thus, no previous art experience or talent is required to construct beautiful jewelry or other objects with precious metal clay. 

    Although the skills taught in this course are generally appropriate to all metal clay, this class with focus on low cost bronze metal clay while skills are developing. The instructor will supply approximately 30 grams of bronze metal clay. Typically this is enough for a pair of earrings and two medium sized pendants. See photograph for objects created from approximately 30 grams of material. Students will learn skills that may be applied to working with other metal clay such as copper, silver or gold metal clay. 

    Due to the relatively lengthy firing time required, this course is divided into two sessions: in the first, the student will develop their clay objects which will then be fired. In the second session, students will finish their fired objects by polishing and/or applying patinas or dyes, and/or jewelry findings.

    This course will be held in two 3 hour sessions on consecutive weekends: Sunday April 5th and Saturday April 11th from 10 AM to 1 PM.

    A materials fee of $25 covers all materials needed for the class including each student's bronze metal clay, jewelry findings and finishing materials.

    Screen printing basics. Make stuff! Print on T-shirts, signs, posters and just about anything you can think of.  Vinyl stencil is a quick easy way to get exposure to t-shirt printing using vector art.  You will learn to use the cutter/plotter, transfer vinyl stickers, and print shirts all in one class.  We will discuss tools, techniques and media.  Take advantage of hands-on projects and small class sizes. Get detailed understanding of what screen printing is and how to apply it to your project.  At Maker Place we have everything you need to make professional prints on t-shirts. In this class, we will learn to print with vinyl stencils. 
    Closed-toe shoes are required. 
    A small materials fee covers each student's pigments, ink and screens. 
    Students should bring in their own Tshirt that they would like to print on. (It wouldn't hurt to have a backup too.)
    Due to the extensive amount of information covered in this course, the instructor will provide a demo design for students to practice with.

    This course is intended for people that are looking to get into building their first quadcopter (drone).

    Over the course of an afternoon the student will be assembling a DJI F450 quadcopter from a kit provided by the instructor. You will receive all the components necessary to build and fly a basic quad with the capacity for future upgrades. In addition to physically building the quad, the battery system as well as software configuration and tuning will be covered.


    For this version of the class we will be doing a high end kit build. The finished quad will have a DJI NAZA
    Lite flight controller with GPS capabilities such as Return to Home and Position Hold. This controller is
    not an open source build and is intended to be as beginner friendly as possible, as well as being one of the most reliable controllers on the market today. 

    The instructor will lead the class through the build and
    cover all necessary information based on over four years of drone building and flying experience. After
    building, each drone will be tested outside to ensure functionality. Some spare parts will be included, and
    documentation will be provided to allow you to acquire further spare parts and future upgrades.

    Required skills: basic soldering abilities as well as being familiar with hand tools.

    Each student will need to bring in a laptop. If you do not have a laptop, MakerPlace will provide a PC laptop for students. 

    Other recommended tools: high power soldering iron, wire cutters, metric Allen keys. If you do not own any of these, they will be provided to you for the course.

    This is a beginner class and therefore no prior programming knowledge is needed. 

    A materials fee of $500 includes each student’s materials: quad kit, radio, 2 batteries,  charger, and GPS.

    Students must register and pay before March 20th so the instructor can order the correct number of kits. 

    Students cannot reschedule or be refunded for the class beyond that date as the kits cannot be returned once they are ordered. 

    Closed-toe shoes are required.
