We Are Open! (Thursday, Jul 23rd - HG )

(Come on back! )
    Hello makers,
    The Duluth Makerspace is open and in full function. If you are interested in using the space as a member, we are limited to RFID holding members only, due to limited staffing (To gain RFID access you must take an orientation class and be approved). Additionally, for the foreseeable future we will not be holding classes. As we adjust our norms at the Makerspace to support recommendations by the CDC, we ask you to be understanding as we move through difference phases of reopening. You can expect these health measures enforced by DMS during this time:
   
    1. Members will be required to wear masks (cloth or surgical) while in the space
    2. Maximum 25% building capacity
    3. Established hand-washing protocols for everyone.
    4. Communication regarding any changes, alerts, or issues as we move through this process will be through slack and on the DMS website. Please check these sources for updated details.
   
    Please contact duluthmakerspace@gmail.com with any questions. Thanks everyone for the support! Hope to see you all soon!

DMS & Coronavirus (Sunday, Mar 15th - Alyssa )

    Hello Makers! In an effort to help slow the progression of COVID-19, Duluth MakerSpace will not be having public hours for the rest of the month. We will reevaluate for April and update you again then. If you are a member with fob access nothing will change for you, but please maintain the recommended 6' social distances, wash your hands, and stay home if you or a family member is not feeling well. If you are a member without fob access please contact us on slack, via email, or Facebook. Thank you!

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: A loose knit group of about 30 very enthusiastic member-volunteers who aspire to endlessly improve and creatively use our 11,000sqft building. Over half of the equipment is on loan or donated from members! The remainder is currently privately funded to keep us well stocked.
Q: How long have you been running?
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.
Q: Who is the place for?
A: All ages (18+ for non-class-based solo access), Women and Men, Anyone who is curious, who wants to learn new things from enthusiastic people. Anyone who is artistic or otherwise creatively inclined. Anyone who likes to create things but may not have room at home for all the various tools needed. Anyone wanting to take or teach classes on a wide range of subject matters.
Q: Do you have tool X or can you support hobby X at the shop?
A: If we do not already have the tools we will look into finding a way to integrate it into our offerings. We encourage you to help us gear up and teach the equipment! Our equipment list is helpful.
Q: I'm interested! What are ways I can be involved?
A: Come take a tour. Become a Member. Come volunteer working on space. Donate or lend some needed equipment or funds. Join our facebook page. Tell a friend. Come take a class. Anything is appreciated!
