For a few months I’ve been thinking about zipping over to the Wal-mart and picking up 16 or 17 of these pocket-sized composition notebooks for the kids enrolled in the DIY/Maker seminar. Then I’d have to ask myself, “Why buy these notebooks when the students can make their own?”
And so it will be done in Richmond, VA next week.
I decided to whip up a quick prototype of a sketchbook before a rare chance to have lunch with my husband and before receiving a call to pick up a sick Jobot from school.
I used some cardboard for the front and back covers, which is too thick and rigid for my taste.
I folded up some paper…
I did like the running stitch that I ended up doing.
So that’s that. The new semester starts Tuesday. I have some vague idea of where we’re going the first few weeks. After that it gets kind of foggy. I’m trusting that the kids will help guide our path. After all, the direction we take depends on what they are interested in doing and what they want to make.
