Project 1: A Making Mashup

You’ll each choose a popular descriptor and a thing from my lists. Use the descriptor to make a thing, and post it here on the blog. Use the internet for research– tutorial sites like Instructables.com are great if you’ve never worked with a certain material before. Post up photos, a brief description of your creation including which descriptor and which thing you were assigned, and any sites/resources that proved useful during your research. Your assignment is due on the blog at 8pm ET Monday September 9.
