Upcoming in November

Coming in November

We had some great classes in October and more to come in November!

Maui Makers is still working out the details of the November schedule, but expect to see Arduino, Wearables, 3D printing and more Tinkering. We will be meeting every Thursday at St Anthony and hope to add more dates shortly.

Business Matters

On the business and organizational side, Maui Makers has incorporated as a 501c3, and elected a Board of Directors and Officers. The Board has completed a Strategic Plan and a Preliminary Budget to take the Makerspace to the next level. In that light, you’ll be seeing a few changes in the near future:

A paying membership structure will be set up to help us pay the bills–electrons to keep you informed cost money. We are committed to keeping costs low, but will need your help in pushing to the next level with more tools, classes and a permanent space.

Members will get free or reduced cost access to classes.

We continue to explore space options. We have yet to secure affordable, unlimited access to a permanent home. If you have any leads in this area, please contact the Board at info@MauiMakers.com

    Reminder and update: Come join us Thursday 6 to 9 pm at St Anthony. Maryknoll Hall. Rm 21.

    Maui Makers will roll out our Strategic Plan, with a special emphasis on Finding a Permanent Home. Maui Makers has tried working with sub-optimal and free spaces. However that model will not let us reach our goals, so we have concluded that leasing a commercial space is the best option to get where we need to go. I have a number of volunteers lined up to give classes in November, but We have identified a plan to secure a commercial space and start build out in the next few months. This plan will need assistance from the community to be a success. Our target space is approximately 1,000 sq ft suitable for establishing a basic workspace and holding workshops and classes.

    We will need your input and assistance to build out and equip the space.

    On another note. My plans for November will likely be limited due to unavailability of space–if you have a space Maui Makers can use for evening or weekend classes, please email me at laura@mauimakers.com.
