MakerLab 2RG

Working on a knitting project? Bring it! Love to draw? Meet others who do too! Want to help build a 'photon torpedo'? MakerLab is the place to be!

MakerLab is a multi-disciplinary community space stocked with tools, technology, materials and mentors. Every week, we offer a new activity to try. Or, bring a project from home. Bounce ideas off other creative people!

Cool tools include a Tinkerine 3D printer, Epilog Laser Cutter/Engraver, silversmithing tools, sewing machine, as well as an ever-growing variety of general purpose tools. Please note that ages 13 and under must be accompanied by a guardian.

Wondering what MakerLab is all about? Come see for yourself! It's completely FREE to join in, when you bring your own materials. If you want to use the gallery's materials, the drop-in fee is $7.50.

MakerLab is open every Thursday from 5-9. Saturdays from 1-4pm (September-May)

MakerLab 2RG is a gathering place! Both new and experienced makers can work on projects, access new technologies as well as traditional tools, and connect socially.  It is also a workspace for people who may not have their own.  MakerLab is a sounding board, a meeting place, a learning space, and a place to hang!  We call it a lab because we hope you'll experiment with your creativity, learn new skills, and be inspired by what other makers are creating, both in our own community and worldwide.
