Learn to Make

There's only one good way to learn how to make: by making. But whether you're a newbie or an experienced maker attempting something new, it helps to acquire and practice basic skills before starting your own original projects. These hands-on workshops from the world’s top makers in collaboration with Make: editors will prepare you to hack, tweak and build whatever you dream up.
