When & Where
i3 Detroit is a DIY collective (aka, makerspace or hackerspace) in Ferndale, Michigan, with tools and resources to facilitate a wide variety of projects. The i3 in the name is our goal: Imagine, Innovate, and Inspire!"
i3 Detroit is supported by its members through monthly dues, but is open to guests as well. The facility hosts workshops and classes as often as possible, and our Open Shop Fridays are popular. Classes are led by volunteer instructors (mostly members). Members as a rule are generous with their time and experties, so if there's something you want to learn about, stop by and ask!
When there's no class happening (and sometimes when there is!), you'll usually find members in the space, soldering, sewing, welding, sculpting, or just hanging out.
i3 Detroit was founded in 2009. We have about 140 dues-paying members. Donations from students and guests are always appreciated, and have the potential to substantially increase our resources!
