Adult Makers

All of our makerspace equipment is available for you to use during open studio hours.

About this event

We expanded our adult makerspace open studio hours to select Tuesday nights, Thursday mornings and Saturday afternoons! Before attending open studio hours for the first time, please complete this form to request training.

Available Equipment

Laser Cutter

The Epilog Mini 18 provides a 18″ x 12″ work area and is used for high quality engraving and cutting of wood, acrylics, glass (including drinking glasses), textiles and more. We have a supply of12″ x 12″ x 1/8″ wood squares available and drinking glasses to engrave. You are welcome to bring your own materials too.

Sublimation Printer

Our sublimation printing process uses a heat press to bring ink and polyblend fabrics (at least 40% polyester) together as one. The result is a high quality full color design that is embedded in the substrate rather than laying on top like our heat transfer vinyl process. Please bring your own polyblend fabric. Do you want to sublimate on non-polyblend fabrics (like 100% cotton)? We have special vinyl sublimation paper for that. Sublimation works surprisingly well on wood too.

Heat Presses

We have three heat presses — a flat 15″x15″ heat press, a mug heat press (the first mug is complimentary), and a hat heat press (bring your own polyester hat!)

Vinyl Cutter

Our Silhouette CAMEO vinyl cutter is great for making graphic t-shirts and decals. We have heat-transfer and decal vinyl in an assortment of colors. Please bring your own t-shirt or other substrate.

Sewing machines

Our sewing machines are available to use during maker nights! If you’re interested in instruction beyond their basic operation, please email Siv at dsiv@clpvd.org .

Button Maker

Large and small-sized button makers are available to use.

Wacom Tablet

Hand-draw your own designs with our Wacom Tablet.
