Did We Mention We Are Open?

Posted by Tara Tiger Brown (Creator)

Hello, is it me you're looking for?

I have received enough related membership inquiries lately that I thought it warranted a proper blast... but first, I wanted to share this with you: in just one month's time since we received our Kickstarter funds we have been able to do what we wanted to do, buy a Laser Cutter, 3D Printer and have Open Project Time. Kind of awesome/amazing/outstanding. So, thank you thank you.

Questions:

  • When can I start using my membership?
  • When can the person I bought the membership for start using it?

Answer:

NOW!! It took us a bit, alright, a lot longer than we thought to sort through the survey results to determine who planned to use vs. gift memberships but that is all sorted so we can now enter everyone into our membership system and send out nice welcome emails.

In the meantime, come on in!  

OPEN PROJECT TIME

Saturdays 9am - 1pm / Host: Eain Bankins

Sundays 1pm - 5pm / Host: Robin Sehler

One of our Board Members will be in the space during Open Project Hours either teaching a class or supporting you in your projects. We will continue to work on adding more open project time as we work on logistics, budget, etc.

All of our scheduled classes and workshops can be found here: http://lamakerspace.com/calendar

VOLUNTEERING

We are always looking for volunteers that want to help with classes, during open project time, to teach a class, mentor, etc. Sign up here: http://lamakerspace.com/i-want/

We have openings for Fellows/Apprentices that can work a minimum of 20 hours/month in exchange for a full membership. If you are interested, check out the current opportunities or propose something to me: http://lamakerspace.com/job-openings/

I hope this update has been helpful. 

Hope to see you on Saturday or Sunday!
Tara
