A community Workshop or Makerspace

The space would be open to the public to learn how to use tools in metal fabrication, wood working, electronics, and composites. The space would run with daily, weekly, or monthly membership. Membership would allow time in the shop to work on tools, access to training and certification for tools, and access to classes taught by members. The shop could provide tools that most people cannot afford to buy on their own such as a CNC router, 3D Printer, Laser cutter, milling machine, embroidery machine. Though courses would be offered for all ages the space could be used for after school and summer camps and classes for students to learn and be certified in trade skills. This space could spur entrepreneurship, teach needed workforce skills, and provide a community for the many artisans and crafts people in the Katahdin region. Many of these maker spaces exist across the US. Maker Works in Michigan is a good model to see.
