Maker Fundamentals

What can people expect when they join us for a Maker Fundamentals workshop?

Maker Fundamentals are short workshops that are all offered at #MilieuxMake (1515 Ste.-Catherine W., 10th floor, room 825). The workshops are offered by experts in the field who have prepared material and designed an experience to offer participants the possibility to develop a new basic or intermediate maker skill.
