Makerspace Ground Rules

Prep Yourself

  • Safety First

    • No loose hair or clothing when working with power tools
    • Use only the tools you know how to use — get instruction for those you don't
    • Report broken equipment
  • Keep a positive attitude; be courteous and respectful of the space and other makers.
  • Be on time.
  • Bring your materials.
  • Ask for help with anything!

Prep Your Space

  • Use only the supplies you need.
  • Make reservation on the space you want to use.
  • First timers, make an hour long reservation with the space, than add on a consultation section with add equipment, finally check out on the cart. Our facilitators will be with you and the machine you would like to know about. 
  • Paint and liquids should stay near the sink and away from electronics.
  • Protect your workspace surfaces; Use cutting mats when working with knives and sharp tools and plastic or towels when working with liquids. When in doubt, use extra precautions.
  • Keep it clean.

Have Fun!

  • Get out of your comfort zone!
  • Challenge yourself!
  • Keep trying!
