Visiting with Librarians

Creatorspace hosted a booth at the “Setting the Trend, Librarians as Leaders” conference last Thursday, June 7, 2018 at Clear Falls High School. An amazing opportunity to talk with school librarians about makerspaces in the schools!

Makerspace Crawl

Did you know that Houston has other Makerspaces in addition to Creatorspace? We do, and thanks to David Brunet and our own Jared Williams, we are going to step outside of our comfort zones and go out and visit with each other!!

The Houston Summer Maker Space Crawl begins this upcoming Saturday, July 15, 5:30pm – 9pm, and will be hosted by Creatorspace (of course). Our theme will be Molecular Gastronomy – hors-d’ouevres and beverages will be served. The evening is oriented towards adults, but children are welcome.

The Crawl will be highlighting a different Makerspace each Saturday for the next six weeks. This is a great opportunity to work together and to get people out to visit the various makerspaces around the city.

Creatorspace Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was last Saturday, and was amazing in spite of the rain!

Creatorspace “Soft” Opening This Week

Creatorspace has been hard at work since the move at the beginning of the month, rearranging, cleaning, sorting and building, and we are finally ready to welcome you all to the new Space.

Starting this Tuesday, April 25, at 7pm, we will be commencing our regular weekly Open House again. Come by, take the tour, see what new goodies we have (and see some old things you didn’t know we had)!

We are calling this our “Soft” Opening, in contrast to our Grand Opening on Saturday, June 3, which will be a much bigger celebration of  who we are, and our formal introduction to our new neighbors in League City. Stay tuned!

Creatorspace’s new address is 120 Park Avenue, League City TX 77573, the big blue building at the intersection of Main Street and the railroad tracks.

The new Space is 4500 sqft, more than 3x our previous Space. It has multiple rooms, much better parking, and is accessible from the street (no gate!). Check out the pictures on our Facebook page!

As we’ve been teasing, Big Changes have arrived for the Space.

Tuesday night the City Council approved the lease on the new Space!!

As you read this, we are moving to 120 Park Avenue, League City TX 77573

The new place is 4500 sqft, more than 3x the current one. It has multiple rooms, much better parking, and is accessible from the street (no gate!).

We are planning a Grand Opening in the near future, but until then you are welcome to stop by and see the new Space.

We have a lot of plans for the increased space and increased visibility, and are looking forward to being a vibrant member of the League City community!

We sincerely thank the League City Council, Mayor and the Department of Economic Development for their enthusiastic support, and hard work in bringing Creatorspace to League City!!
