We are starting something special! Through Byron Makers, we aim to provide opportunities for creatives, makers, and solo-entrepreneurs in Byron to connect, learn, and grow.Our definition of "maker" is inclusive. All artists, designers, crafters, tinkerers, inventors, bakers, and musicians are welcome to be part of the Byron Makers.In the year ahead, we will have access to a makerspace classroom at the DACS/CEC building. The space will undergo a renovation in the Summer of 2023. We plan to outfit the space with equipment including: laser-cutter, ceramic kiln, 3D printer, cutting machines, heat presses, art equipment (easels, throwing wheels, etc.) and more through grants and donations.How you can get involved:
- Join the Byron Makers Facebook Group!
- Come to our Byron Maker Meet-ups, participate in the Fall Creativity Challenge, or take a class.
- Share your talents and passion for making. Teach a class or facilitate a youth enrichment activity.
