Makers Market of Ludington

We're moving in May! We will be moving from our current location at 227 W. Ludington - May 31st. Looking forward to the second year and next phase of your community makerspace, we have a few options ahead.
  • WHEN: Now through the end of April it's full steam ahead! Regular hours, and we have a few fun workshops/events scheduled.
  • WHAT: Our members are interested in more access to the makerspace (woodshop, metalshop, tools, etc.) with expanded, scheduled outreach (workshops, classes, youth programming, etc.).
  • WHERE: Our next location has not yet been determined. Have a building suggestion? Let us know here
  • HOW: We need help... during this transition and for the ongoing needs of managing our makerspace. Submit your name if you are able to help
Special thank you to the Community Foundations for Mason and Muskegon County for the use of this wonderful building. Your generosity and investment enabled us to get started so we may grow. Thank you!
