Design Incubator


If you like to make things instead of buy things, customize things yourself, sew, cook, code, chisel, chop, draw, paint, embroider, sculpt, 3D model, or burn holes in things with lasers the Design Incubator is for you! We meet about once a month, getting together to talk about our ideas, work on projects, and make stuff. Sometimes we think about how design might be useful in combating violence and hate-crimes, sometimes we learn about a particular tool or maker practice, and sometimes we just get together and share ideas and eat grapes or what ever snacks people bring.
