*Update– The TinkerMill has existed for six years. The Winter Make-it is a celebration of the five years that TinkerMill has been in its current location.
Whether you’re an inspiring creator or a well-established artist, you are invited to the Winter Make-It 2019. The event will take place on October 12, 2019 and is a celebration of the TinkerMill’s 5th anniversary.
The Winter Make-It Celebration will occur at 1840 Delaware Place in Longmont, CO. The event will run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will feature a variety of activities to keep the entire family entertained.
According to the official flyer, workshop tours, demonstrations, exhibits, and a maker-style scavenger hunt are just a few activities planned. There will also be Donkey Car robot races, gifts, and a performance by the Westview Middle School Pops Orchestra at 3:30 p.m.
The Winter Make-It is an opportunity to see the new and expanded spaces. Each month, more than twenty shops offer more than 100 classes — all on a variety of topics.
The public event is an exciting opportunity for the TinkerMill to showcase its goal of offering every hobbyist, amateur, and expert creator a space to collaborate and design their vision(s). It’s a one-of-a-kind model that has made waves both locally and nationally.
Members have access to a woodshop, metal and machine shop, PRS Alpha ShopBot, the Laser/Engraver Cutter, electronics and robotics lab, 3D printers, a forge, a textile and fabrics shop, and a welding shop.
