New Garden (Friday, May 7th - HG )

(DMS got a Green Thumb)
    We are so excited to announce @duluthmakerspace and @shoreviewnatives will be teaming up this summer to bring our community a little bouquet of native prairie and a living sanctuary for our bees!
   
    What does that mean?
   
    @shoreviewnatives helps “home and business owners translation outdoor spaces into landscapes that support aesthetic, ecological, economic, and social goals. They specialize in installing gardens featuring local and regional plant species.” Essentially we get to play postive and active role in supporting our community with our garden!
   
    If your interested in working with @shoreviewnatives, see their website shoreviewnatives.com or message them on Instagram @shoreviewnatives

Check Out These Rails (Friday, May 7th - HG )

    It’s always good to learn new skills and to test our ability to create. Check out these skate rails welded in the DMS metal shop. Crafted completely from scrap metal, and a little bit of creativity, these rails are off to a good home.

Busy Night (Friday, May 7th - HG )

(Too many cooks)
    Busy night in the craft studio here at DMS! Spelunking gear, dog agility course bags and haul bags to ascend El Capitan in Yosemite are being engineered and sewn all at once. Bit of a conga line to use our industrial sewing machines.

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!
