BLDG 61: Boulder Library Makerspace

Hi BLDG61 friends! We are going to be closed this week starting Tuesday (March 5th, 6th and 7th). I'm sorry we can't be here for all your making needs this week, but we have been tapped to fabricate a huge exhibit at the Public Library Conference in April and need to have some time in the shop to finish everything up. Pictured is a sneak peak of our Colorado ski Lodge themed booth. See y'all once we get this lodge off the ground!
March is #MendMarch and we will be having three mending workshops on Mondays in March, all on different mending topics! The first is March 4th 3:00-4:30. Sign up at the library website and help us mend clothes and keep them out of the landfill!
Hoodie Embroidery by Anna- for whoever needs to hear it this week. Stay Determined!
Due to staffing shortages we have had to cancel the Sunday event for BLDG61. Apologies to everyone who was planning to attend, we hope to get staffed up and be back and better than ever!

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.
