We’re Open for Membership & Classes!

makerspace membership and classes

Together we did it!

After five years of visioning, designing, building, outfitting, and lots of fundraising, grant writing and red tape in between, Carroll County’s first dedicated makerspace and vocation hub, Makers Mill, has opened its doors for membership and classes at 23 Bay St., Wolfeboro.  Every mile of this journey has been accomplished with the support and encouragement of volunteers and donors – thousands of hours, hundreds of thousands of dollars, innumerable gifted items that now have a new home in the makerspace, and megawatts of creative energy and ideas. 

Become a member and/or take a class

There are many ways to participate in Makers Mill: as a member, a class attendee, an instructor, or a volunteer. It is open to all levels of makers: students, hobbyists, and professionals; providing a place where people feed off one another’s interests, curiosity, enthusiasm, ideas, feedback, and projects; and facilitating collaboration, mentorship, and learning exchanges.

Check out our membership page for information on the different membership levels as well as our calendar of events for details on the upcoming classes where members and non-members alike can register to attend.

In a nutshell, Shop Membership requires that an Orientation and Tool Safety Class/es are successfully completed before a member can use the space and tools independently for personal or professional projects 24/7.  Shop Membership is $65 per month or $699 per year. The Tool Safety Classes are additionally fee-based and information on these can also be found on the event calendar.  

For those simply interested in classes, and not independent access to the shops and tools, the Maker Member is the best membership option at $35 per month or $375 per year. Both types of membership have additional benefits including class and household discounts, advance notification of classes, and free access to the Tool Lending Library. 

Upcoming classes

Building the program of classes is ongoing but some of those already open for registration include the Woodshop Tool Safety Class this Saturday, October 8; Creating Upcycled Art from Hubcaps on Saturday, Oct 15; Macrame, Braid & Cordage, Oct 15; Sewing 101 Oct 18; Craft your Comic, Oct 22; Basic Floor Loom & Weaving, Oct 25; Advancing Your Career, Oct 27; and Beginner Metal Jewelry, Nov 19-20.  In addition, a certified career councelor will be available, for in-person or virtual coaching sessions, every other Wednesday from Noon-4pm, by reservation. 

New classes are continually being added and if you’re considering taking one, check out our Class Attendee Policy & FAQ to get ahead of the game!
