Take a virtual tour of the new Alkek One MakerSpace with MakerSpace coordinator Noah Brock! Noah will give a sneak peek of the spaces and equipment that will soon be available to students, faculty, and staff.
Also, check out some demonstrations of the types of tools you will be able to use.
Follow along with librarian Megan Ballengee as she demonstrates several techniques for making your own masks at home. Techniques will include no-sew options.
Here's an example:
Drop in on artist Candace Pauly's yarn studio and take a tour of a professional craft setup. Following the tour, Candace will give advice on how to set up your own craft station and will answer any questions you have.

Librarian Tricia Boucher will demonstrate the basics of crocheting. No crochet hooks? No probem--Tricia will demonstrate using household tools.
