The Makerspace at Art Works is proud to host our first tool orientation open house on November 10, 2018 from 12:30-3:30 p.m.  This event is for anyone ages 18 and older, but don’t worry, youth membership is currently being considered by the committee.

Come and try out our tools, get the skills tests done so that you can use the equipment safely whenever you are ready for membership!  Skilled mentors will be on hand to guide you on any tool you want to check out.  Just want to watch?  Observers are always welcome!
