Two Loons Partnership (Sunday, Oct 15th - Miranda )

(Our display with a few pieces )
    We have always wanted a way for members to be able to sell what they make to our local community. Two Loons Gallery and Boutique has now made that easier! We have partnered with them to have a display that shows off, and offers up for sale, items made by members of the MakerSpace, and they're even located in our same neighborhood, Lincoln Park! Go check them out.

Beautiful Cutting Board (Tuesday, May 16th - Joe )

(Greg's board has a bit of attitude.)
    Combination of using our woodshop for making cutting boards, and then big laser to engrave them is pretty sweet. Greg did a spectacular job with one recently.

3D Printed Bot (Monday, May 15th - Joe )

(Chelsey has spent some time sanding and painting to achieve a realistic old robot look)
    Our 4 Makerbot 3D printers have been running well, we also have the fancier MendleMax3 finally producing as well. Easy to use tools to make most any part you can dream up.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is a MakerSpace?
A: A Cooperative Workshop, run like a fitness gym, where a monthly membership pays for shared access to tech tools, electronics, woodshop, metalshop, techshop, crafts, classrooms, fabrics, etc! Similar places have been sprouting up across the country. They are a real community asset driving innovation, education and cooperation. Our biggest asset is the other members.
Q: Who is running this?

A: We bought the building end of 2014, and volunteers have been tirelessly working on improving the space since then. We had our grand opening September 17th, 2016.
