A group of Rutland area residents and local organizations, with support from the Rutland Economic Development Corporation (REDC)are starting a Makerspace in Rutland, VT.
A Makerspace is more than just a shared workshop with all the tools you don't have space for or couldn't afford on your own. A Makerspace is a community of people sharing their knowledge, experience, and ideas in addition to tools, equipment, and workshop space. Its members are a diverse group featuring hobbyists, DIY enthusiasts, local school representatives and students as well as start-up, non-profit, and for-profit companies.
Access to the space and equipment is available to everyone for a monthly, or yearly, membership fee, with the option to reserve personal workbench or small office space for an additional fee.
Members of the community, as well as of the Makerspace, would also be offered opportunities to teach or enroll in classes in related fields and proper equipment use.
The most important part of a Makerspace is you! Whether you are a hobbyist with dreams that are too big for your basement, an innovator that just needs the space and resources to get your new business up and running, or an outgoing individual that loves working with on projects with others, we want you to join us!
