MPLS MAKE, a community workshop for Twin Cities-area woodworkers, is christening its new Northeast Minneapolis location this Saturday, March 5, and is inviting everyone to come celebrate with them.
The larger Central Avenue space (4,000 square feet vs. 500) caters to woodworking enthusiasts, hobbyists, and contractors who want to use their skills, but may not have access to the space (or the pricey equipment) they need. Members pay monthly dues in exchange for unlimited access to a workshop fully stocked with professional-quality tools and machines.
Beyond just filling the need of a space to work in and tools to use, MPLS MAKE provides the main benefit of working in a shared space: the knowledge of all the other members.
“There is a sense of camaraderie and community between the members so it feels natural and comfortable to ask for help or advice on whatever project you’re working on,” their website states. “This feeling of community is an extremely valuable part of the workshop.”
Get a feel for that community from 2–5pm Saturday, March 5, at 1858 Central Ave NE, Minneapolis.
