This is the first Claremont MakerSpace meeting, and we’ll be covering everything from “What is a MakerSpace?” to specifics about bringing the Claremont MakerSpace to life and plans for upcoming meet-ups. We’ll also be showing off some projects that local makers have created, to demonstrate the types of tools and classes that we plan to offer at the Claremont MakerSpace. Come and meet other Makers in the Upper Valley and find out how the Claremont MakerSpace is progressing. This event is open to the public and is for all ages.
