You are invited to the Maker Programs! At "Relax & Untwine," an event that's geared toward adults, you'll participate in crafting, engage with new technology and socialize in a relaxed atmosphere. 

What is a Maker?

A maker is:

  • someone who wants to go beyond buying and consuming technologies, devices, and products to redesigning, fixing and creating them
  • someone who's curious about how stuff works, and who thinks he or she could build something better
  • someone who likes to find new uses for old things, look for solutions to real-world problems, and to overcome barriers
  • someone who has great ideas and wants to develop hands-on skills to match

If this sounds like you, then you're a maker and you should come to these events! Program details below.
