Manchester Makerspace recently obtained an occupancy permit for 36 Old Granite Street and will be holding a work party on Sat. May 21 from 9 am to 3 pm to transform it into a working space for makers of all kinds.

- Painting several walls in the office area and bathrooms – paint, brushes, rollers, masking tape will be supplied
- Vacuuming warehouse area floors, both wooden and cement
- Vacuuming carpeted offices and shampooing carpet
- Removal of wooden stairway and wall frame with chicken wire

Tasks above will be selected/started based on the number of people available and skill set of those involved. If you can’t make it on May 21st, they’re already planning another work party on May 28th.
Manchester Makerspace is a non-profit cooperative organization of members who maintain a shared workspace, tooling, and skills in the Manchester community. We will provide access to shared resources, training, and mentorship for the benefit of Manchester’s local entrepreneurs, makers, and artists of all ages. This will be a member maintained and operated Makerspace.
There are already several similar spaces up and running in other communities in NH. Check here if you would like to learn more or help with getting the space up and running. If you are a creative person who would like to learn more about the maker movement Makers in Manchester meets on the third Thursday of the Month at 6 pm at the SEE Science Center.
