    • Robotics/toys
    • Weather stations
    The possibilities are endless - and within your ability!

    This is an ongoing class - after getting the basics, we'll help you get started on more complex projects fit to your interests.

    We shall demonstrate our new laser cutter rotary attachment and celebrate Halloween with the ancient craft of laser pumpkin etching.

    We now have the capability to etch designs into cylinders, like glasses, or round things like...pumpkins.  You can pick your design, learn how it is prepared for laser cutting and how to use the laser cutter with the rotary attachment.  Plus - bring home your own small spooky pumpkin!

    We explore the work our members are doing with textiles - from laser cutting patterns to embroidery to knitting and sewing.  We'll share projects finished, in process or dreamed up.  Come see, and share your own work!

    The open house is the best time to tour the makerspace, get a demonstration on one of our machines, meet our members, and perhaps learn about something new.

    In the 1970's, Michael Krinsky was a Peterborough based artist selling his stained glass at craft shows.  In a few decades, he and his business partners had developed one of the country's largest 'artwear' (printed t-shirt) companies, with viral hits like their 'three wolf moon' shirt, and over 250 employees. 

    How did they make their art profitable from their base in the Monadnock region?  Michael will share his experience of navigating startup struggles, developing effective marketing strategies, and growing while maintaining a commitment to their founding values.  

    Masterclasses are designed to support new entrepreneurs by connecting them to their most important resource - other entrepreneurs. They tell the stories about what has worked in our region, and the pitfalls that must be overcome. They are an opportunity to learn, share, and meet the talented people that are helping to shape our region's future.

    Navigating the financing of your business can be one of the most challenging, and opaque, things for entrepreneurs to navigate. People United Bank's Adam Hamilton and Nancy Dubosque from the Small Business Development Center will discuss the options available in our region for business owners, and more importantly when and how to approach these options. MAxT Makerspace's Roy Schlieben will also discuss the new Our Town Capital group, and what it could mean for business start-ups looking for financing in our region.

    Masterclasses are talks by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. We tell the stories about what worked in our region, and the pitfalls that must be overcome. They are an opportunity to learn, share, and meet the talented people that are helping to shape our region's future.
