This past weekend the new Duluth MakerSpace celebrated its opening with an open house on Saturday and Sunday and hundreds of people stopped by to see what it is all about, and I was one of those people.

I visited Sunday afternoon and was given a tour of the 10,000 square foot building which houses just about anything one would need to make anything one wanted. It has a woodshop, metal shop, a crafting room with sewing and embroidering equipment, laser cutters, electronics, 3D printers and more.

Everyone I met on my tour was incredibly nice and helpful, and I was more than impressed with the space. They not only have the equipment to do various projects, but they also offer training, with several classes available.

A membership fee of $45 a month gives members access to use the equipment and discounts on classes. They also offer daily passes, and classes are available to the general public, check out the class schedule here.

If you're someone who is crafty and likes to make things with their hands, this is a place you should check out, I'm looking forward to taking some classes soon, so maybe I'll see you there.
