We're MWTMC (or 'The Centre', as most of our members refer to us) a Makerspace in the Peoria Area (Bartonville, specifically). 

If you're unfamiliar with the term, a Makerspace is a community-operated workshop where people with common interests can meet, socialize and collaborate. 

We primarily focus on providing space for our members, and hosting classes for the local community on topics our members have interest or expertise in, while keeping costs low. We are very family oriented (almost all of our members have kids, or kids on the way), and try to work that into our classes whenever possible. All of our classes are open to the public, and are generally free, or include a small materials fee. 

We have a number of different workshop spaces including: 
*An Event Room
*3d Printing/ Electronics Lab
*Textile Lab/ Scrapbooking workspace
*General use Workshop with a variety of hand and power tools
*Studio with Kiln, Paint Booth/ Fume Hood, and Pottery Wheel
*Dark Room
*Commercial Kitchen
*Kids Exploration Room
