Sparks will fly as Mayor Rogero cuts a metal ribbon to kick off the grand opening of Knox Makers new community-oriented makerspace on Saturday, April 1st, 2017 at 11 AM. The event, located at our 116 Childress Street workshop, is open to the public and will include tours of the new workshop spaces and displays of projects made using the tools in the space that consist of 3D printing, lasercutting, wood working, metal working, and more.
“Knox Makers is more than just tools and a workshop,“ says Knox Makers President Doug Laney. “We have almost 100 members who come together and share what they know. By combining skills and working together, they can make things that they wouldn‘t be able to make alone. That collaboration brings a real sense of community to the space. Being a part of that community is the best thing about Knox Makers.“
The Grand Opening will begin with the ribbon cutting at 11AM, with tours and demonstrations continuing until 4PM. Knox Makers will be signing up new members and selling t-shirts during the event. Mean Mama‘s Burgers and Such along with Big O‘s Famous Barbecue food trucks will be on site serving lunch.
