March Madness Has Arrived!

First, the good news: It's time to Meet Your Makers!!!

That's right. Saturday March 9th at 11:00, Fresno Ideaworks is introducing its new monthly Maker event, "Meet Your Makers".  It's a chance to share ideas, learn about the community, compete for exciing prizes, and eat pizza!

All of the excitement will be explained at the first meeting, but an important piece to know about ahead of time is new our monthly Maker Prompt!  Each month a prompt will be selected and everyone will be encouraged to make something (literally anything) that the prompt inspires in them!  Some prompts will be literal objects, but others might be vague and mysterious.  

Your Maker Prompt submissions (if you provide them ahead of time) will also be highlighted in the Ideaworks lobby for the Arthop before the meeting, so crank them out and drop them off!

March's inaugural Maker Prompt is... "Lucky Charm"

So ask yourself, what does "Lucky Charm" mean to you? Is it a talisman, a token of fortune, an artifact of faith or family? Maybe a pet, child, or other loved one? Then again, it could just remind you of breakfast cereal! Now, make something that represents or reminds you of that thought. It's easy to get makerly "writers block". Stuck. Frozen. This is a way to shake yourself by the collar and create! Make something and we will celebrate the achievement together! If you're worried that it misses the prompt... slap a shamrock on it!

Now, the less fun news.

After several weeks of awesome progress creating new studio space on the second floor of our beloved building, it was two steps back last week, when an old roof leak opened up again and nearly ruined work in adjoining rooms. We will persevere! But we are asking our friends to share this link far and wide - we need your help to protect and improve the makerspace for all. Every contribution to this campaign is an investment in the maker community.
