Hi! I’m Maren.
A while back I got to thinking about how I like to fiddle with stuff, and how there’s this full-fledged maker movement SWEEPING THE NATION – but there’s no institutionalized ways of learning exactly how to do any of this anymore.
Home ec, wood, metal, and auto shop – they’re all gone. No one learns how to make or fix things anymore. Unless you’re as obsessed with Google as I am.
I’m going to Google some shit and learn how things are done. And you should join me.
I have a loose plan:
- I’ll take a few classes on welding, wood working, canning, whatever – and report back on the results.
- I’ll talk to makers, maybe even record their actual voices so you can hear what a maker sounds like in real life.
- I’ll interview old dudes. Because old dudes know what’s up. And you know they make the best shit.
If this sounds compelling to you – like, at all – sign up right at the top of the page here for my newsletter that comes so sporadically yet so packed with cool nonsense that you will have both forgotten who I am by the time it enters your inbox and be delighted by it’s magical content.
