Laramie residents working on opening a makerspace will be holding meetings the second & fourth Sundays of every month from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM at the Albany County Public Library, (310 S 8th Street).
What is a makerspace? Makerspaces are a community-operated workspace where people with common interests can rent spaces and create or be "makers" together. This includes people working in 3D printing, art, bicycle building and repair, CNC router, computer-aided design, electronics, electrical fabrication, embedded systems, fashion and textiles, jewelry, lampworking, laser cutting, machinery, metalworking, painting, photography, precision metal machining, publishing or printing, robotics, screen-printing, sculpture, software development, stained glass, sewing & fiber arts, video, welding, woodworking, etc. Makerspaces can also offer classes for adults, teens, and kids, co-working spaces, cafes/restaurants, and more.
The idea is to get out of your home or solo studio space, work among your neighbors and peers, share tools and resources, and get inspired by other creative people doing amazing things.
There are now makerspaces around the world ( http://makerspace.com/makerspace-directory ).
So far, however, there is no makerspace in Laramie, so a group of locals, are launching a makerspace for residents of Laramie and beyond.
Please share this information with friends, families, and neighbors who you think might be interested.
