A Place for Local Making welcomes anyone to bring in surplus materials and electronics. We invite you to play, make, think with them, transforming them into useful or enjoyable things. We also welcome anyone who makes, repairs and repurposes to share their know-how and invaluable creations.
Let’s foster a community of maker-carer-user-hackers! Ideas for future collaborations are always welcome. Drop by or contact us!
