Welcome to Fredericksburg Makes! The mission of this group will be to foster the Maker/Tinkerer attitude, share resources, learn, build and create. Long term goals include setting up a Makerspace in Fredericksburg and host our own Maker Faire.

This group will cover Kid specific activities (even as young as 2-5 years), as well as Young-Adult to Adult activities. We will have projects geared for the beginner all the way up to advanced. There will be something for everyone and much for us all to learn.

This is a brand-new group. So for the next couple of months we will be focusing on getting members, locating resources, and making partnerships. When joining, please let us know what you hope to get out of this group and how you can contribute (include skills, or equipment and supplies). If you are interested in joining the facilitators/leadership please let us know that as well. We will be glad to have you! 


The membership dues are completely voluntary and will be to set up a fund to offset some activity costs and to cover anyone who may have need. Most activities will have fees associated to cover materials, location fees or other related costs. These fees will be set specific to each activity and posted in advance. 

Welcome!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
