NVCAC Makerspace Day for all ages!
What is a makerspace?
a place in which people with shared interests... (like ART!) can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge.
We like having our Saturday afternoon Makerspaces (usually for adults) at the old Courthouse west side.
There's lots of art supplies.
But we have been invited to the Civic Centre that day for our all ages Makerspace.
Stay tuned for our plans...
