BLDG 61: Boulder Library Makerspace

After a whirlwind tour of Columbus, one of our Creative Technologists has come down with something, so we are having to cancel Open Studio for today. Apologies for any delayed making- we hope to be back and better than ever soon!
BLDG61 is closed this week as we are in the process of opening the Library Lodge- a one of a kind Colorado experience at the Public Library Association Conference in Columbus, Ohio. Stay tuned for pictures of the completed build later this week 🌲🌲🌲
Might still be snowing outside, but making a little propagation station on our laser cutter brings spring indoors 🌱

BLDG 61 is a free community workshop dedicated to hands-on learning and the cultivation of purposeful experiences through making.

The makerspace is equipped with a broad selection of tools and materials to fulfill the needs of both creative and industrial projects. Laser Cutters, Sewing Machines, Welding Tools, CNC Machines, 3D Printers, Looms, Screen Printing Equipment, Vinyl Cutters, Electronics, Woodworking Tools, and more are available at BLDG 61.
