New to Hartford, MakeHartford.com ,we are a new and growing "MakerSpace". MakerSpaces are community centers with tools starting about late 1990's. Current examples: AS220, CTHackerspace.com, MakeHaven.org. We have a space now and are growing. We have 2 3-D Printers and we should get  Laser cutters etc. craft and other special tools. We are working on fixing our small CNC and vinyl cutter etc. More tools and skills to come.

Makerspaces, like ours, combine manufacturing equipment, community, and education for the purposes of enabling community members to design, prototype and create. We can make things that wouldn’t be possible to create with the resources available to individuals working alone. Got extra tools? Got an old workshop filling your garage where you want to park the car? Got "Know-how" - want to show us? ( Videos from other Makers) Origami, Soldering, Wood working, Knitting, Pottery, Programming, brewing beer,  Lasers, Drones/UAV, Arduino, Electronics,  Business Startups and Prototyping, and/or Deconstruction. Or do you want to learn? Let's share tools, knowledge, skills and space. We are located at 30 Arbor St., next door to a fine Hartford Arts group, Real Art Ways, 1 block north in a basement. Almost all Wed. Nights we have an open house at 6 PM. See meetups.

MakeHartford.com is Hartford's first and only MakerSpace community of artists, technologists, and entrepreneurs for hands-on innovation. Where minds create matter.

Some activities/meetings will  be free as public meetups. Some activities and classes are for paid monthly memberships levels from around $50 and up. We are non-profit and not commercial, a volunteer community group - like a club or a small group gym, we work together as a group to keep costs down. Fees are for our workshop rent and costs only. We reduce costs by volunteering, donating, and sharing. Let's make !

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
