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.
