Just wanted to notify everyone that we will be in the space on Thursday (02/21) starting at 6:00pm for an official work meet up. We will be doing a number of things, including but not limited to:
- Workbenches - Finishing what we've started in the workbenches. We have made some good progress, and we probably have enough now to start. We may build a few more, but our focus will be on finishing and placing what we have.
- Organizing - Begin moving stuff into place, and organizing the space.
- Floor Cleanup - Our floor needs some work. Before we put floor tape down we need to clean it. Hopefully we will have what we need to get a crew cleaning it.
- Computing & Security - Setting up workstations, setting up camera system.
- Discuss Fundraising - We will be working on a number of fundraising options in the next month or two. We may spend some time organizing those efforts.
- General Cleanup & Hanging Out - Anything else that comes up or needs to be done, we will try to get to. Also will use the time to simply hang out.
Although this is a work night, please feel free to stop by, see the space, and meet us.
If you are interested in becoming a member, an active participant in our group, or want to donate to our efforts please stop by and see us or contact us.
Look forward to seeing you all there!
When & Where
The Rochester Makerspace is a nonprofit community workshop and art studio located near downtown at 850 St. Paul Street. We're here to encourage learning, creativity and collaboration by providing low-cost and free access to sophisticated tools, offering a wide variety of classes, and by providing opportunities for “makers,” artists and craftspersons of all kinds to meet and interact with each other.
In addition to the classes and events listed on this page we also invite to attend the following activities, which do not require registration or a ticket:
Every Thursday Night from 6 to 9:30 PM - Weekly Community Night & Open House.
You are invited to come and use the Rochester Makerspace for free. Bring something to make or work on, help with a group project, or just come to meet other "makers" and see what we have to offer. (Sorry, but nonmembers can not use our wood or machine shops because of insurance issues.)
