On Thursday, the Boston Makers hosted the local community at their makerspace to for their first annual holiday party and tool drive. The makerspace, the first of its kind in Jamaica Plain, is located in the basement of Hyde Square Task Force's Cheverus Building at 361 Centre Street (behind the Blessed Sacrament church). The Boston Makers is a partnership with the Hyde Square Task Force. The party featured refreshments, music, a photobooth, and raffle for a 3D-printed ornament. BostonMakers requested donations of tools, materials, and funding to help build electronics, woodworking, and craft stations in the makerspace.
Boston Makers presents a Summer Learning Series, four summer events to help you learn more about makerspaces and the maker movement!
