    MAXT Makerspace is hosting a four session game design workshop by Nate Scheidler for ages 13 and up. Sessions are January 11,18,25 and February 4 from 10am to 12pm barring weather delays. Participants are expected to come equipped with a notepad. 

    Discussions will focus on analog games (board, card, social) but many of these same ideas are applicable in the video game world; in fact, some video games are developed as board games first! You don't need to have a project in mind to participate, the very first session will be about turning your ideas into a plan.

    Sessions offered include:

    January 18: Concept: Believe it or not, you have probably participated in game design on some level during your life. Many designers get their start in what we all know as "house rules". We will discuss the world of games in broad strokes and perform some brainstorming exercises. We will also explore themes relative to mechanics and how they impact the player experience.

    January 25: Structure: In this session we will discuss play mechanics and rule writing, refining the game in theory before bringing it to life in your prototype. We will also discuss publication, and how your game can be turned into an actual product. We will establish what each participant needs to bring with them for the next session.

    February 1: Prototyping: We will be making simple prototypes of our games from session 2 to make them ready for playtesting. Participants are expected to supply their own materials, although some spare parts may be available for use. Some playtesting may happen, but this is mostly tips and tricks for crafting your components for use and easy modification.

    February 8: Playtesting: We will talk about the playtesting process, making good observations, and refining the play experience to get people excited to play it again.

    Building your own boat can be a rewarding woodworking project - but there are infinite types of boats, designs, and construction methods. Where do you begin? 

    In this class, we will start with a beginner’s overview of the effects of shape and construction on the building process and the performance of a boat powered by paddle, oar, sail, or motor. As a class, we will decide what we want our class boat to do best, we will design it with a scale model, then build a simple full-size small boat to our design - using materials available from any local home improvement store or lumberyard.

    If you are looking to build simple small boats for rowing, sailing, or fishing, this might be the only class you need. And if you have your heart set on a more complex shape with more exotic materials and finer finish, this course will help you decide your next step!

    Introduction to Boatbuilding is offered through a partnership between MaxT and Mill Hollow Works. MHW is a heritage craft school based in Keene NH, that teaches people how to improve their quality of life through the use of traditional tools and local resources. We offer courses in Boatbuilding, Homebuilding, Homesteading, and more, with the mission of helping people live in a state of self-reliance.  For more information, millhollowworks.org

    An introductory class in the use of Japanese hand tools and joinery techniques. Students will work on the traditional sawhorses used to create two Japanese workbenches, one that will be used in the MAxT Makerspace shop, and a second that will be raffled off to a class participant.  Students will learn use of Japanese saws, chisels and planes, supplied by the instructor, and how to use these hand tools to create mortise and tenon joints.

    The workshop will take two sessions of 4 hours each (10am-3pm with an hour lunch break).  

    About the instructor: Paul Tuller has been working with Japanese hand woodworking tools for over 35 years to build traditional Japanese interior spaces and custom furniture. He is the co-founder of The Guild of NH Woodworkers and a past juried member of The League of NH Craftsmen.

    This workshop invites participants to explore printmaking in a new way by using lego tiles to create geometric, colorful letterpress prints. Create representational designs and abstract patterns piece by piece, utilizing a variety of lego tiles as building blocks or pixels. Participants will learn the basics of inking and printing color-by-color on a letterpress proofing press, and will walk away with a collection of of their own rich, tactile single- or multi-color art prints, plus one print each from everyone else in the workshop.

    No letterpress, printing, or lego experience necessary. All are welcome!

    Zines (pronounced “zeens”) have a rich history in the United States and abroad, giving people a platform to voice and distribute their ideas in the form of a small publication. The beauty of the zine is that anyone can make one with a single sheet of paper. It’s a great format for self-expression and experimentation.

    This workshop will introduce participants to a quick and easy way of producing a one-sheet zine that folds into multiple pages, and opens up into a poster. We’ll use a variety of drawing and collaging materials, giving participants the opportunity to work in whatever way speaks to them. Everyone will leave with a collection of zines!

    This workshop is an introduction to relief printmaking. Participants will explore different carving and mark-making techniques using linoleum blocks, and a variety of ways blocks can be inked and printed—including methods requiring little to no specialized equipment. We’ll also cover the fundamentals of printing carved blocks on a printing press.

    Participants will produce a printed edition of their own one-color linocut prints, and will also walk away with a portfolio of prints produced by everyone in the workshop.

    All skill levels welcome and no previous experience necessary! (All materials included.)
