Purchase Tickets

I’ll be teaching the next edition of Papercraft Automata at Make Nashville on October 29th from 12pm to 4:30pm, and this time we’re building the Creepin’ Frankenstein!

Using Rob Ives‘ wonderful paper automata designs, I will teach you the basics of mechanical movement. Each class will explore a different mechanical movement concept including crank sliders, scotch yokes, geneva cranks, gear boxes, worm gears, rack and pinions, and more.

You need not have taken previously editions of the class to take this one. Each is self-contained. And you don’t have to be a Make Nashville member to participate, though being a member gets you the member discount.

In this edition, we will extend our knowledge of  cam followers and learn about gear reduction by building the Creepin’ Frankenstein. You’ll be able to incorporate these concepts into your own projects.

Date: Saturday, October 29 from 12pm to 4:30pm.
Location: Make Nashville, 947 Woodland St, Nashville, TN
Class fee: $7 for Make Nashville makerspace members. $12 for non-members.

All ages are welcome, though students 12 and younger should have an adult to assist them. We only charge per kit, so if an adult and child are working on a single kit together, it just counts as one admission.

We will supply all tools and components, however if you have a favorite cutting mat, pair of scissors, or Exacto-knife, feel free to bring it along.

Buy your tickets here. This class is limited to 18 students and is expected to sell out, so reserve your spot quick.
