One of the basic tenets of Makers Local 256 is education.

  • People with the knowledge to teach others should make a potential class known.
  • People interested in taking any listed classes should make that desire known.
  • Education doesn't have to be a tenured professor, a university, and 40 students.
  • At least one person with something to teach, one chalkboard (optional), and at least one student: That's education.

Calendar

  • June 25, 6:00pm - 8:00pm: Creaform 3D Scanner Demo at shop
