We have all been cooped up during these strange and stressful times. Many of us are trying to find fun and safe activities to do with friends and family to help us reconnect after being apart for so all. Class sizes are on the small size and people will be spaced out. Rest assured that the Makerspace staff is doing their best to keep this a safe environment with extra cleaning and safety protocols. High traffic surfaces are swiped down with Clorox throughout the day but please help us out by following these protocols:

  • If you have been feeling sick please communicate with the instructor to postpone or reschedule, open communication is Key!
  • Sign in when you arrive, Wear your masks, Have A Blast During Class, Wash your hands periodically, Sign out once you take off for the night.
