Our Staff has been working hard to ready our shop for your innovative projects and prototypes. We've always had our eyes on safety here and now, in these times, we are being even more careful for everyone's health.

But now we're now calling our shop, the SAFESHOP!

What's that mean? We'll be following state guidelines and providing detailed protocols for everyone's safety.


Please read through the new plans we've put in place:

OPENING
Tuesday, June 2nd at noon. We are returning to normal operating hours as posted on our website.

ENTRY
  1. You can still enter through Market Street or Talcott Street doors, but not Main Street at this time.
  2. Face masks must be worn in the G.Fox building and our shop. You are expected to have your own mask.

CHECK-IN

  1. There will be a new check-in procedure at the shop reception desk.
  2. You will be reviewing our additional safety procedure guidelines and signing off on our iPad.
  3. A shop staff member will take your temperature with a touchless thermometer.
  4. Upon check-in, everyone will be required to wash-in in the kitchen.

OTHER SAFETY COMPONENTS

  1. Numbers in red circles are posted showing the safe number of persons allowed in each shop or area.
  2. Click here to view the floor plan and capacity updates.
  3. New SAFESHOP signs are posted throughout the space with reminders about keeping our facility clean and sanitized.
  4. There will be rolling carts throughout the facility with hand sanitizers and cleaning supplies for sanitizing workstations and equipment.
  5. Additional gloves and masks are provided, should you need them.

THE THINK TANK

  1. As volunteers continue to fabricate face-shields in the THINK TANK, it is off-limits for other uses at this time.

Our staff has worked hard to keep MakerspaceCT here for you and we consider this place to be our second home. We can have fun, be inventive, and get our projects complete as we always have, but let's just be conscious of each other's health and safety while moving ahead.

Thanks, everyone for your patience through these strange times.

See you here soon!

Yours in the making,

Mark Colbert
