• RPG One-Shot Night

    North End Makerspace

    Welcome to One-Shot RPG Night! Every other week we will be hosting a rotating roleplaying hangout. People are welcome to come with their own one-shot games to GM and if we have enough players we will break up into multiple groups. For each event your host will also offer to run an interesting RPG and will have everything players need to enjoy a four hour (or less) game of RPG silliness and will include simple instructions for those unfamiliar with the game played that session.

    North End Makers is a community that runs a makerspace in North Seattle. We are an all-volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit. Learn more on our website at www.northendmakers.org

    Proof of vaccination and masking required. You may email this ahead of time to [masked]

    Content Warning: Roleplaying games often involve simulated violence and death, and can sometimes feature horror, alcohol, drugs, sex, and class disparity. If these things are not for you, that's understandable. We will occasionally feature RPGs that focus on cheerier themes and make sure they are marketed as such.

  • Zine Making

    North End Makerspace

    A zine (/ziːn/ ZEEN; short for magazine or fanzine) is a small-circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images, usually reproduced via a copy machine.

    We have plenty of tables, some collage materials, pens, papers, paint and glue. We also have a large paper cutter and a folding and stapling machine for use. We do not currently have a printer for use.

    This is a casual event to get together and make things, or find out more about zines. You are also welcome to simply draw, write,collage, or work on other paper-related crafts.

    Free to attend, donations greatly appreciated.

    Tickets for this class are $50 and are available through Eventbrite. RSVPing here does NOT guarantee you a spot in the class. Purchase tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/intro-to-3d-design-in-fusion-360-tickets-187990744377

    This is a beginner class focused on the interface and core concepts of creating 3d models in Fusion 360, a popular CAD program for makers and designers. Files created in Fusion 360 can be used for 3d printing, CNC routing, and more! We are very fortunate to have an experienced teacher for this class who will give you a solid foundation in using this powerful software.

  • Intro to Arduino

    North End Makerspace

    Cost: $40

    This is a hands-on introduction to Arduino taught by Clark Wood. Attendees would bring their own laptop (Windows preferred) and the class would provide everything to connect to the Arduino, program the Arduino with the IDE, and modify the program (aka sketch). Attendees would take their programmed Arduino home with them and will have learned how to go further.

    NOTE: if you have a Mac or Linux laptop, please install the Arduino IDE on it before the class.

    Note from the Instructor:
    You bring your laptop and we will provide the Arduino (clone) and the parts to get it running, including a thumb drive of class materials. You get it set up and then take it all with you.
    We will talk about
    What is Arduino?
    Why should I use an Arduino? and
    How do I use an Arduino?
    This is appropriate for brand new users and for folks who may have tried to get going with an Arduino in the past.
    Hope to see you there!

    You MUST purchase your ticket through Eventbrite. RSVPing here does NOT guarantee you a spot in the class.

  • Beginning sewing-Crossover apron

    North End Makerspace

    Cost: $40
    TICKETS AVALABLE ON EVENTBRITE:
    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/beginning-sewing-crossover-apron-tickets-189382386817

    Join us to sew a simple crossover apron with a clean bias binding finish. This class is appropriate for beginning sewists but you should have a basic familiarity with machine sewing. Bring your own machine or use one of ours! We will also be introducing the digital projector as a sewing tool by casting the pattern directly onto our fabric for cutting.

    The Allspice Apron from Hey June Patterns is a crossover full-length apron with front pocket. It looks beautiful in a soft wrinkled linen but works with virtually any woven fabric. It is multi-sized to fit hip widths 32″ – 60″. Make one for yourself or give as a gift to a fellow maker!

    Bring the following with you to class:
    1.5 yards of your chosen (woven) fabric
    Matching thread
    Either 6.5 yards of single fold bias tape OR a 23" square of coordinating fabric to make your own bias tape (which we will go over)

    Virtually any woven fabric would work well, but here is one option if you are stuck for ideas: https://www.joann.com/jo-ann-stores-duck-canvas-fabric/prd23683.html

    This class also serves as an introduction to our projector for sewing projects.

  • Learn Along: Arduino Sensors

    North End Makerspace

    Cost: $5/week
    GET TICKETS: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/learn-along-arduino-sensors-tickets-189372186307

    Meet with us every Saturday morning to go through the tutorials for the ELEGOO Upgraded 37-in-1 Sensor Modules Kit. Every week we will go through at least one tutorial, possibly more, depending on time and interest. This is not a class. While your hosts have some experience with Arduino and electronics, we are not familiar with all of these sensors, nor are we Arduino experts. We will be learning along with you. All skill levels are welcome to come for learning or helping others learn. If you are completely new to Arduino, you may consider taking our Intro to Arduino class being offered the week before this starts. You do not need to commit to the whole series, but can jump in when you like. If you follow us on social media, we will try to let folks know what sensor we will be covering.

    You will need to bring:
    A laptop with the Arduino IDE
    An Arduino Uno R3 or other compatible board and the cable to connect it to your laptop.
    Your 37-in-1 Sensor Kit
    Jumper wires
    A breadboard

    These 31 lessons range from simple projects like how to monitor temperature and humidity with DHT11 sensor to complex projects like how to achieve the goal of timing control switch using a 1 channel relay module. You will be able to use these sensors in a wide variety of projects after our series.
