We moved most of our equipment down to the new space and passed inspection! Just a few more additional projects and we’re ready to go.
We’ll begin Open Lab Hours on Monday, April 10th. So, stop by to check it out!
Contractors just finished the build out of our new space directly downstairs. It’s a great storefront with double the space and much improved street visibility.
We’ll be closed for a period as we move our equipment and add some new equipment and fixtures. Our target re-opening is April 1st, and we’ll provide updates and a firm date here.
We hope you’ll use the downtime to develop new projects to begin when we re-open. Search Inventables, Instructables, Make, pinterest, Etsy, and other sites for ideas.
If you have projects in process that can’t wait, please visit one of our other SouthWorks MakerLabs. Joliet Junior College and South Suburban College (Oak Forest) both have open lab hours and experts to help you.
