Meet the Makers invites you to join AHML in getting to know new Makers and new ways to Make each month. The series features talented Makers throughout Chicagoland discussing and demonstrating their work, from weaving and screen-printing, to pottery and glassmaking and more! Each segment explores the unique creative inspiration and practices of our featured artists. Follow the series and watch the possibilities of making unfold. Follow us on Instagram @ahml for upcoming events. Some events require registration on Zoom to get up close and personal with our Makers. Meet our Makers and find recordings of past events below.
What is a Makerspace
A Makerspace is a collaborative work space. It's a place to spread out and work on a project if you don't have the space at home, a place to use tools and equipment that you might not normally have access to, a place to network and meet fellow makers in your community, and a place to learn new skills and talents.
At the library's makerspace we're going to have some really exciting technology and equipment available for things like laser cutting, 3d printing, and embroidery. As well as classes on art, cooking, sewing and more.
If you'd like more information about our makerspace opening in 2021 you can checkout the Makerspace page.
