Nashua's makerspace gets an upgrade to bigger facility
NASHUA - Makerspace MakeIt Labs has moved from 29 Crown St. to 25 Crown St., tripling the amount of space available to its growing membership.
"We've been at our old space for almost five years, and we've grown a lot in that time, and we were getting to the limits of that old space," MakeIt Labs president Adam Shrey told The Telegraph, of Nashua. "There were some things holding us back - how the space was structured, where it was located. The new space will allow us to continue to grow."
MakeIt Labs is New Hampshire's first volunteer-run makerspace; it opened in 2010.
Makerspaces are creative spaces where people can gather to learn, invent and share equipment, usually for a monthly membership fee.
MakeIt Labs will offer classes, in addition to woodworking machines, welding equipment, and will look at adding 3D printers.
The grand opening will be held at 6 p.m. on Feb. 25.
