Open house for teachers at Saskatoon Makerspace

May 5, 2017

Hello my name is Devon Plett and I am the owner of Saskatoon Makerspace located in Riversdale. We will be hosting a private tour for teachers of Saskatoon and surrounding area on May 5, 2017 from 3:00-8:00 at 140 ave C South, Saskatoon.

This invitation is extended to all industrial and visual arts teachers, as well as any teacher interested in the arts. The evening is a come and go event, with light refreshments and snacks. We will also demonstrate some of the equipment we have.

“Makerspaces are places that provide creative people with access to tools & equipment and the education that is necessary to safely operate them. Saskatoon Makerspace focuses on accessibility, education and collaboration. We want to challenge the way we view consumerism by educating makers on the process of creation, while inspiring each other to transform our artistic concepts into entrepreneurial ventures.
Memberships will provide makers with flexible and convenient access to technical tools, as well as opportunities to connect and collaborate with other makers.”
