Dreaming Session: What do you want in a maker space?

It's time to dream. It's time to brainstorm what we really want. It's time to make things happen.

The TIC has 10,000 square feet of manufacturing floor space that is NOW fully available for a mix of woodworking, metalsmithing, small engine repair, additive or subtractive manufacturing. If it's related to tinkering or manufacturing, we can make it happen on the Manufacturing Floor.

TIC Management is exploring a variety of options for a maker community, from woodworking to welding, 3D printing to injection molding, it's a possibility! So what do YOU want?

Bring your ideas about how to spread this idea to the community, develop partnerships with other local groups and fundraising ideas!
