Step inside the vibrant world of creativity and innovation at the MakerLab, a community-led makerspace nestled in Southwest Colorado. This dynamic space is dedicated to fostering collaboration and providing makers and artists with the tools, equipment, and resources they need to bring their ideas to life. With specialized labs for metalwork, woodworking, laser cutting, textiles, 3D printing, electronics, and more, the MakerLab offers a diverse range of opportunities for exploration and creation.

At the heart of the MakerLab is a member-driven movement that encourages individuals to unleash their creativity and embrace the spirit of innovation. In this session, join Kim Harms, an experienced maker and guide, as she takes you on an immersive tour of the MakerLab. Experience firsthand the buzzing energy and the wealth of possibilities that await within its walls.

During the tour, you will have the opportunity to participate in a live demonstration on the laser cutter. Each attendee will craft their own custom logo business card holder using this versatile tool. This hands-on activity will showcase the MakerLab's capabilities and empower you to create a practical and personalized item to take home.

If this session is full and you would like a tour of MakerLab at another time or you have questions, you can email info@themakerlab.org
