Houston Makerspace officially has a brick and mortar location!
We are pleased to announce that we have secured a space in the heart of East Downtown
at 100 Hutcheson Street!
In this location we will provide our members with more than 21,000 square feet of space to meet the needs of our diverse maker community. This space will house our initial shops, providing areas for those interested jewelry fabrication, screen printing, rapid prototyping, carpentry/metal work, and sewing and textiles. We will also have classrooms to house our educational programs in addition to over 3,000 square feet of climate controlled office/studio space and a coworking lounge for an individualized focus. All guests will have access to both fenced and secure car parking and also a 10,000 square foot green space which will serve as our community garden.
Call for Volunteers
In the coming weeks, we are seeking volunteers to help us tidy up Houston Makerspace. We are looking for all hands on deck for jobs like painting the walls, sweeping the large warehouse floor, and generally dusting the cobwebs leftover from the previous owners. We are also looking for help with skilled jobs, seeking people with construction, plumbing, or electrical expertise. Though we are consulting with professionals in these areas, we will use all the volunteer expertise that we can get!
All interested volunteers please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Call for Instructors
We are also excited to begin filling our calendar with great educational programs. We are now actively seeking members of the maker community to sign on as instructors at Houston Makerspace. We are looking for a variety of skilled makers to help us provide a diverse and unique spectrum of programming opportunities for the Houston community. If you have a skill you'd love to teach, we look forward to hearing from you.
All interested instructors please e-mail email@example.com
Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
We have a lot to tell you and don't want to bombard you with too much information at once. We will be breaking up our announcements into several emails and posts over the next few weeks. Stay tuned for information about our Mural Contest, Membership Drive, Community Partners and Grand Opening party!
We will also be letting you know when you can stop by and get a sneak peek of the space.
See you soon!
