What you likely knew about the enthusiasts of makers local is that we drink a lot of soda. What you may not have known is that we recycle every can of tasty beverage we slam down, but it’s not always taken to the local recycling center. Some days are melt days.
Members of Huntsville’s Rocket Westies, a westcoast swing dance organization, recently collaborated with members of Makers Local 256 to create a portable dance floor. The floor was created at Makers, and made its first debut at the RW headline event, Westies on the Water, a weekend long dance event situated on lake Guntersville at Guntersville State Park.
NPR’s WLRH invited us back to record a PSA for the upcoming Pig Roast and LAN Party on Saturday July 9th 🙂
Maker Phil Showers has made several pieces of pottery at Makers Local 256. Featured here are four cups he recently fired in our pottery kiln.
Aside from the kiln, Makers Local has a pottery wheel and many various slip casting molds. Phil keeps a large block of clay and a clay cutter on hand and is willing to share at cost with anyone interested in developing their pottery skills.
Use of Makers Local is free and open to the public. As long as there is a member here to open the door, you’re welcome to come and visit 🙂 Tuesday nights are the best time to come and visit Makers Local, as it’s our open night and we’re at our best for giving tours.
