If you haven't heard about it already, the ideaLAB is DPL's makerspace, located in the Central Library in the Community Technology Center. What's a makerspace? Well, it's a place for making stuff - music, art, robots, games, websites, purses, paintings - and giving you access to the tools you need to do so (we have 3D printers, the Adobe Creative Suite, a music studio, a Dremel - see our complete list of tools here). We opened two years ago as a space just for teens, but we've been slowly adding more hours for other ages.
Women of Denver, are you looking for a safe place to create? Connect? Work? Practice? Learn? Build? Collaborate? Discover?
