What's Happening at Houston Makerspace?Program events
Imagine a “gym” for creatives, with a month to month contract where artists and makers of all kinds can go and exercise their ideas and build their artistic muscles. East of downtown Houston, Houston Makerspace is exactly that. Join VAA on Saturday, June 4 from 10 to 11 a.m. for a private tour at Houston Makerspace, 3605 Texas Street, where members and non-members will learn about this unique community centered warehouse studio, which includes shops for woodworking, welding, printing, jewelry making, ceramics, as well as a teaching farm.
Houston Makerspace opened in April 2014 and moved to their new 8500 square foot warehouse a year later. Maclean Smyth, the founder and operator of Houston Makerspace, will lead this free tour. “I believe that creativity aspires innovation and ambition in our culture,” Smyth says. “With this space, we can build a society of makers right here in Houston.”
