What is The Makery?  The vision of The Makery is to provide a place for people to imagine, experiment, network, collaborate, and create for personal and professional growth. The Makery will utilize the Hannaford Career Center’s infrastructure to provide the community with a makerspace for Addison County. The Makery is a membership-based collaborative that currently offers an Engineering Lab/3D Printing, a Building Trades Lab, and a Sewing Lab. The Makery will be open to members from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. every Thursday through the end of 2018. As membership and interest grow and new lab space mentors are recruited, additional lab spaces will become available. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming family programming.
