MayKerLexington Park participates in Maker Movement 


Across the country a Maker Movement is emerging to promote DIY (Do It Yourself) in a community setting to get people to be makers of things, not just consumers of things, and to promote the sharing of talents, skills and equipment.   MakerSpace is the name given to these shared work areas where people can mix art, design, technology, food, science, and the internet cultures to create projects. 

In May, Lexington Park will provide the following MakerSpaces in the Cafe area as part of the statewide initiative called Mayker Mondays:

May 6

2-4pm Making a Quilt

5-7pm Making Recycled Crafts

May 13

10am-12 pm Making Jewelry

4-6pm Making a Move-Chess

May 20

10am-12pm Making a Stitch
