The BB2C Makerspace is located at the Epicenter and was created to be a gathering point for our community. Here you will find people with shared interests who gather to imagine, explore, create, design, and prototype. Our 6,600 square feet of space offers access to a collection of tools, technology, and know how to the community through class offerings and special events. Anyone who becomes a Makerspace Members gains access to all of the tools and equipment in the space to start their own projects. We are a community of individuals interested in learning, making, and creating.

If you have not yet visited us this year, we hope you will stop in for a tour or take a class with one of our Instructors or Content Experts!

See all our currently scheduled classes further down on our page!

We are a part of the BB2C Epicenter at 107 Lancaster Street in Harmar Village. The Epicenter is at the intersection of Lancaster & Franklin Street. The Makerspace entrance is on the left side of the building at the top of the ramp.

UPCOMING MAKERSPACE CLASSES

We are here to serve the MOV Community. If you have a project you would like to do or skill you would like to learn, please let us know. We can also arrange with our content experts and instructors to run special classes if you have a large group (5+) that are all interested in taking a class, but can not make our scheduled classes above. For help with either of those, please contact the Makerspace Coordinator.
