The Makery is a pop-up Makerspace – part shop & part workshop. A temporary venue where youth and adults are encouraged to be curious, to tinker, to experiment, and to make with technology. The Makery is a portable playground, a place where communities can gather to play with the creative power of digital design and fabrication, physical computing, and computer programming.
The easiest way to stay updated is to join our Facebook page or sign up for our mailing list on our website www.nycmakery.com.
