Every other Wednesday from now until the end of June, the KCI Makerspace will be hosting evening workshops. At these workshops makerspace members or staff will facilitate making a particular project. Projects will vary and attendees will benefit from learning from people who have delved deeply into particular maker materials, approaches and tools.
