Can't make it to class in person or need a quick refresher? These easy-to-follow training videos are for you! If you feel that you would like a hands-on class before using any of the below equipment on your own, visit our event calendar to register for the next available class. If you feel confident to use the machine after watching one of the below videos, you may take a short test that will certify you to use and reserve the machine. Tests must take the test when staff is available in The Maker Spot. Staff are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Please remember that as of October 1st, 2018, non-residents over the age of 18 are required to sign up for a monthly membership to use the equipment outside of classes and events.
