HWLC Maker Lab Adds Open Shop on Mondays

We know creative projects take time to develop. So we're adding Open Shop on Mondays at the Harold Washington Library Center Maker Lab to give you more time to work on all those ideas. Our Open Shop schedule is:

  • Monday: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 1 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Saturday: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Open Shop is the perfect time to get a tour, get information about materials, see what others are making, get a quick introduction to design software—or get started on your next project.

What can you make during Open Shop? Signage, models, prototypes, gifts, something wearable, something inspirational. With a laser cutter, 3D printer, electronic cutter, milling machine, sewing machine, embroidery machine, button maker and more, the possibilities are endless.
