Progress & Update (Thursday, Sep 20th - Alyssa )

(Old lights)
    We are submitting our letter of appeal to the city today and hope to be open for business again in the near future!
   
    We are also getting the lights in the woodshop upgraded today with some nice LEDs. We had a lot of volunteers help with the woodshop and it is going to be even better than before!

Temporarily Closed For Projects (Tuesday, Sep 11th - Joe )

    DMS is temporarily closed for member access. Volunteers are welcome to come and help work on DMS itself but starting Wednesday the 12th we are closed for normal member usage for a few days while we cross some I's and dot some T's. All memberships will be extended by the number of days we are closed. Thanks for your patience and understanding. We will update when we know what date we can open back up for full access.

Big Work At DMS This Month+ (Saturday, Sep 8th - Joe )

    Pardon the Dust, or come help make some! DMS is making a big effort at improving the woodshop and a long term remodel of lapidary/pottery. So, we need volunteers and patience during the process :) See our Volunteers channel in our chat (Slack) for current efforts and how to help out.

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!
