If you build it, skills will come!

Join us Sundays in the workshop for a new one day program for aspiring makers and inventors. Practice and improve your maker skills while working on a one day project. Each week you will have access to our makerspace for you to build a project to take home.

We are trying something new this fall! Most weeks fall will is Open Make, where you decide what the project is. One weekend a month we will host a more guided experience with a thematic project. The guided experiences are great for folks new to the makerspace and people looking to grow specific skills.

Skill Builder sessions occur most Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., check out our current offerings below!
