Barrel of Makers is a group working to found Delaware's first makerspace: a community center where makers of different skill levels and ages can come together to build and showcase projects.  We share space, tools, and knowledge with one another.  Makerspaces are working to provide meaningful connection among generations and to make passion sustainable. We need one of these in New Castle County, and we need your help to make it into a reality.
