MAKER SPACE 307 CLASSES 

MS307 offers both High-Tech Computer Driven Classes and Low-Tech Handmade Classes. Classes are labeled.

In general we are open for classes and open work time on Thursdays from 6-9pm, during the day at any time by pre-arrangement. Please check out Calendar.

The Makecation – For those who love to make, we introduce the Makecation. There are 2 Saturdays with two different workshops back to back, if you sign up for both classes you are going on a Makecation and will get $10 off the combined cost. Makecations are $80 and are packed with lots of take home souvenirs of your making journey.

We are always open to new ideas, new instructors and suggestions for class. So check our website often to see if new things have been added. Please contact Lorre Hoffman if you are interested in teaching, or have suggestions for us, lorre.hoffman@wrdf.org


SEC* – Schedule Extra Cut-time. Cut-time is when the digital equipment is actually making the object or image you have created on the computer in a class. Cut times can be from 20 minutes to 8 hours, therefore we schedule times for you to come in and work one on one with an assistant to cut or print your objects. This time management prevents a whole class from having to wait around for their turn. SEC schedules are arranged in class for future completion of projects. 

SAC** – Week end classes often run through lunch time. We highly recommend you bring a SAC lunch for  yourself. If you don’t bring food you can buy food at the Hines Grocery Store across the highway from MS307. You will need fuel for your mind and body to function properly.
