Are you ready for a new hobby, or are you curious about learning a new skill? We’re excited to announce that our Makerspace staff will be offering a series of FREE virtual classes throughout July. These free classes are a great way to explore crafts and technology. From traditional arts like sewing and embroidery to modern technologies such as 3D printing, our staff experts will give introductions, show you examples, and let you know how to get started.
