What we're about

If you like to create things in the world -- you might be a maker!

We're a group of people in the Triangle area interested in making new things. We're about learning and teaching and spreading the ideas of making. Oh, and we insist on having fun while we do that!

Sometimes the things we make are beautiful, sometimes they're useful, and sometimes what results isn't quite wonderful. The attempt, the joy of making, is what it is really all about.

This group is open to everyone. Regardless of your expertise. If you sew, or do string art, or wire arduinos to feed your hamster -- that is making. If you paint, do sculpture, work with clay, woodwork, or design and print objects, you are welcome. Some of the most fascinating things come from the cross-pollination that occurs when people from different areas of expertise interact.

This group has been a fantastic place to share ideas and to meet other makers from across the Triangle Area. In the interest of continuing this community of creatives, it is my hope that we can imbue this group with a new passion to gather and grow in 2019. The upcoming meetings will focus on our future as an online & offline community and how we may better connect with other like minded folks in this area.

I encourage you all to participate in that conversation.
