About the Blanco MakerSpace

Founded in April 2016, this group of makers plan to have a place to use and store equipment to make stuff. MakerSpaces are an outgrowth of the DIY (Do It Yourself) movement where like minded individuals create a space and community for learning and doing it together.

To join the Blanco MakerSpace and view our calendar, sign up on our Meetup page.

We Are Looking for a Space

We're looking for a suitable space for meeting, making things, conducting classes, etc. If you know of any possibilities, let us know.

See the makerspace requirements list on our Projects page

As an interim solution, we will probably set up a few pieces of equipment in the back room of the Bean and Biscuit Coffee House, where we have our weekly meetups.

What We Plan to Do

Projects

Fundamental to a maker space is making things. On our Projects page we discuss proposals for things to work on.

Class Ideas

Both for community outreach and to facilitate our own projects we plan to offer classes in a variety of creative techniques. This page of Class Ideas is where we discuss possible class offerings.

This may be one of our first classes and projects.

Field Trips

Part of a creative life is seeing what other people are doing. We intend to organize Field Trips from time to time to do just that.

MakerSpace Business

An organization, no matter how small or new, needs to get organized. Visit MakerSpace_Business this page to see how we are going about it.

Getting Started with Wiki software
