Do I need to have maker experience to join this program?

Nope! This program is designed for absolute novices. If you’ve never stepped foot in a woodshop, metal shop, or sewing loft before, this program will be a comfortable fit for you.

I have some experience, will this program be too beginner for me?

Unlikely. The program structure and projects are designed to build on the skills of each successive class. If the first couple projects are within your skill set, you can still benefit from the mentorship, skilled instruction and practice provided during the 6 weeks of the program.

What if I don’t complete my project in the class?

You will have unlimited access to the Makespace during the course of this program, so you can catch up and practice your new skills between classes.
