What we're about

Barrel of Makers is Delaware's FIRST and ONLY 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. We are always excited to meet new people, because everyone adds a new perspective and ideas.

Upcoming events (4+)

It's too hot! Let's make snowflakes

Needs a location

Think Frosty Thoughts!

From 6-7:30, we will be demonstrating how to make snowflakes using the free design program inkscape. We will show how these files can be 3D printed, cut on the Silhouette, or Lasered!

Makers are invited to stay for the rest of the open lab hours (-9pm) to work on their own designs, with staff help. Over the next weeks, makers can attend open lab hours to work on their designs, which will be displayed in the Maker Lab window, and as part of the BIG Fun-a-Day Art Show, August 12-13th.

This program is for Adults and Teens
