Online alternatives to makerspace workshops
Check out this link of online workshops and tutorials! The U may be closed but we can still make things together.
The Breakerspace is a free-to-use student-centered makerspace, managed and funded by the Libraries. All majors, years, and skill levels welcome.
The Breakerspace is free to use.
In return, we ask you to share your knowledge, teach others, and help us keep the space clean and in good repair.

What is this space used for?
Students visit to repair clothes and backpacks, complete creative assignments for their courses, and work on senior design projects. Students have made decals for their small business and buttons for student group outreach. Instructors have incorporated virtual reality experiences into their classes.
Next time you visit, ask someone what they're making.
Students and staff teach workshops all year. Bullet journaling, 3D printing, bookmaking, cross stitching, and podcasting! Join us and check out the space while you're here.
We also welcome guest instructors! Can you teach a craft or skill in 30 minutes with minimal preparation? Suggest a workshop for our calendar.
