I put up a suggestion for a technical pattern construction class, its a tailor’s method of producing individualised garments blueprints, made from scratch using you own body measurements. Could this be of interest? You would need to have some basic sewing know-how, and its quite technical (its mostly calculations and careful measurements). Would love to teach others about this almost forgotten method

Me and Alex talked about this a bit and I would love to do workshops, but it would be quite a bit away in the future because right now my life is a bit too much. Here are my ideas tho:

STOP-MOTION (Cut-out) WORKSHOP

Would have to build animation boxes (wooden boxes with holder for Ipads/similar, lights and two-three glass layers to animate on). WOULD NEED USED IPADS/SIMILAR FOR THIS, any leads for cheap or free such are welcome.

EVA-FOAM WORKSHOP

How to make lightweight costumes for film/theatre/LARP(/Burns?) in EVA foam.

super nice! Could you indicate from which month you live might allow you to look further into this? Just so we can keep it in mind and maybe send you a message)

@RobertPenten Check out this thread about hosting paid courses through Blivande. Could be interesting for you. I think car mechanics/repairs would be a super popular topic for many to explore, especially if it’s combined with working on a nice classic car such as your 60’s Land Rover.

Yes, Hello.
This sounds great and I would love to show and talk about in and answer questions while showing. If I would have a garage somewhere near where I could work with the car I could do workshops often since I like to work with it often. I could talk about anything from clutch, gearbox, cooling, heating, air inlets, map fueling and how a cumbostion engine work etc.
Or more like hosting a open talk about it and maybe draw and show on a whitboard and talk about normal problems or how stuff work?

Sign me up!

I think a combo with whiteboard theory and practical work on an actual car is the best way to do it. With like an average 20/80 ratio in theory vs practice. :slight_smile:

Hello all. :heart:
I’ve been absent from this thread for a while, the reason being that despite my enthusiasm and love for this idea, I’ve had to make some difficult choices and de-prioritize certain things for my own sake in order to not overstrech and burn my candle at both ends during a very trying period.
However, I am still willing, ready and able to give courses/seminars in rhythm/drumming, music history/music anthropology and language, specifically Swedish and English. Finnish is available too as a bonus if need be. :grin:
Other topics are possible as well, but the three mentioned above are within areas of expertise for which I already have private projects up and running, so I’m available either for next term, or in case of “emergency” on short notice for the spring, but I cannot guarantee a 100% commitment for the spring term as of yet.
Thank you everyone who is involved in this, especially you @MariaEuler, you’re a superstar. :heart:

Thank you for the feedback =)

2 posts were split to a new topic: My building project (anyone skilled in rendering professional architectural sketches and/or BRF business plans?)

dear @RobertPenten, A workshop/course can be as hands-on/theoretical as you decide. Just set it up as a “New Dream” on this Akademi Dream Platfrom.

Updates can be found in the “Blivande Akademi Forum” here and are also sent via email to registered facilitators.

If you have any questions regarding that you can also ping me directly @MariaEuler.

We plan to start with the first courses in March, but the facilitators decide of course by themselves when they feel secure to hold their coures.

We plan to start with the first courses in March, but the facilitators decide of course by themselves when they feel secure to hold their courses. You can also indicate that in your dream form, and once it get more definitive and the course is approved we add you to the “Blivande Akademi” Google and you can input your dates there.
