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.
From Hwy 3, go east on FM 518 (Main Street). Cross the railroad tracks and turn right immediately at the light. Creatorspace is in #120 in the middle of the Blue Building on the right.
Creatorspace introduces our new League City Community Workspace.
Come for a visit and discover all the capabilities available to you in our new location. Triple the Space of our old location plus Central Air Conditioning.
Food Trucks and lots of Activities are planned for this event.
Electronics – Art – Tools – Robotics
3D Printing – Lasers – Computers
Metal & Woodworking – Amazing Projects – Resources …and MORE
Meet People with Similar Interests & Learn the Skills to Make Your Ideas Become Reality.
Just another great time at our Booth during Comicpalooza.
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!
In case you missed the news, Creatorspace has moved! Thanks to the support of the City Council of League City and the League City Economic Development Office, we have moved to 120 Park Avenue, League City TX 77573 .
We are not open this week, (we are still rearranging everything), but we expect to be back open to the public for regular Open Houses before the end of the month!
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!). Pictures coming soon!
Please do not go to the old Space, as we have moved out already.
Discount Codes for Comicpalooza Tickets
Every year Creatorspace has a booth at Comicpalooza, the biggest Comic Book Convention in Houston. This year it will be on May 12-14, at the George R Brown Convention Center.
Our own Ryan Erskins will be presenting an “Introduction toAutodesk Fusion 360“, the cloud-based 3D CAD, CAM, and CAE tool. Fusion 360 is “free for students, enthusiasts hobbyists, and startups” but does require registration.
Ryan will be demonstrating its uses in a 3D printing environment.
All Creatorspace Library Presentations are free and open to the public. This month we will be in the Children’s Activity Center. Please ask at the reference desk if you need assistance finding the presentation.
Creatorspace is happy to announce the start of Classes at the Space!
Beginning in March, we will be conducting classes on:
Art Through Technology – Using our Laser Cutter/Engraver
Machine Lathe 101 – Learn how to use machine tools safely
Arduino 101 – Introduction to the workhorse of the Maker Movement
Because these will be much more in-depth and hands-on than our previous library presentations, there will be a charge for them. Fees will be $25 for a 2 hour class, $45 for a 4 hour class. There will be discounts for Creatorspace members (one of the many benefits of membership!)
We are still working on the details of scheduling and registration. Expect more information about the classes and instructors, and a formal announcement very soon.
There are even more new activities in the planning stage for the new year, so stay tuned!
