Hocking Makers Network to host first meet-up of year

Nelsonville, OH – January 10, 2020 The Hocking Makers Network is gearing up for the new year, and wants the community’s help to set goals.

HMN will host a meet-up from 5:30-7 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020, at the HMN Wood Lab, 17690 Sylvania Ave., Nelsonville, to give community members a chance to help plan the makers network’s goals for the year, suggest future classes and encourage people to volunteer and teach classes.

“We want to hear from people who want to use the network,” Michelle Robinson, director of special projects and community engagement, workforce development at Hocking College, said.

Robinson and other organizers are looking for feedback on HMN’s price structure and classes and be able to showcase classes and machinery and equipment the network offers to the community.

HMN is designed to give residents from the Appalachian regions of Ohio a network of makerspaces that encourages them to obtain new skills and hobbies through the approachable, affordable classes and workshops. The network’s mission is to provide give community members a place to explore avenues for workforce development, higher education, entrepreneurial opportunities or to develop the skills for a new hobby.

A shuttle will be available to take people from the Nelsonville Public Library, 95 W. Washington St., to the HMN Wood Lab. Since seating on the shuttle is limited, anyone interested in the service should RSVP online at: http://hockingcollege.regfox.com/hocking-makers-network-first-meet-up.

Light refreshments will be served during the meet-up.
