At this time of year, perhaps taking up a new or renewing a put-aside craft or hobby would be a way to bring comfort and relaxation. The Louisville Free Public Library has you covered with its Maker Pavilion at the Northeast Regional Library in Lyndon. Located inside this light-filled space are a 3D printer, a laser cutter, sewing machines, laminator, die cut machine, a design-your-own button maker, and three laptops with Adobe Creative Suite. Here’s a chance to take your art and craft projects to a new level.
If you have an idea for a podcast, there is a recording studio. Want to lead an exercise class to banish winter blahs? There is a porch area that might suit your needs. Have cooking expertise to share? Try out the demonstration kitchen to show off your skills. There is also an Audio/Visual studio available with photography and videography equipment, including a green screen and musical instruments. All for free.
On this outing, we dropped in and got a brief overview of what is available, but in order to actually use any of the equipment, you need to take the Maker Pavilion 101 Orientation that is offered Tuesdays at 6:30pm.
