What is the Makerspace?
The Makerspace is an informal setting in the Collins Memorial Library that allows Puget Sound students, faculty and staff the opportunity to make, create, collaborate, learn and share.
This takes the form of hands-on projects involving no tools to hand tools to high tech tools.
Makerspaces are defined by the makers who use them, but typically they provide the tools and space for individuals to explore, design, create, and modify physical objects in the name of art, research, or creativity.
It’s a place to develop and create something out of nothing and explore.
Rebecca is a senior Makerspace student staff member. She is majoring in art history with a minor in religious studies. Given her interests in both the history and creating of art it only makes sense that her favorite equipment is the Silhouette cutter and the sewing machines, Patchricia and Sewsan. Stop by and make sure to ask her about anything you want to make - she would love to help!
May is a senior student staff member majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Bioethics. Her favorite piece of equipment is the sewing machines. She loves the rise in popularity of sustainable fashion such as thrifting and upcycling. Sewing is her preferred way to personalize a piece of clothing on budget.
Katy is a 3rd-year student staff member working in the Makerspace as well as the Senior Assistant at the circulation desk. She is a music composition major with a knack for visual arts. When she isn't busy in class or her many vocal ensembles, she is working on one of her countless projects whether it be a series of illustrations, a composition or her most current project, a board game. Currently, her favorite piece of equipment is the laser cutter since there are so many different ways you can use it to create art. If you need any creative solutions for a difficult project, just come in and she will be happy to help.
