Welcome to Port City Makerspace

Hello makers and do-ers. As you may have noticed for awhile now we have been using a flashy new website! This is thanks to our volunteer-driven Website Committee. Thanks to Wayne, Joss, Tanya, and Alex (myself) for setting this up!

We now have a nice calendar which stays very up to date. There are pages for memberships, storage options, and day passes. There are some pages describing each of the shops, but we still have more content to put up there. Overall, if there’s anything you feel we should add to the site feel free to email us suggestions!
