The historic G. Fox building in Hartford is getting new life.
It will soon be MakerspaceCT, a place for inventors, manufacturers and students to create and work.
“It’s a 20,000-square foot space filled with education, opportunities, equipment and tools,” said Devra Sisitsky, MakerspaceCT founder and executive director.
It will be the second largest Makerspace in New England. Memberships are being sold now and the grand opening is set for April.
“If you’ve had that idea rattling around in your head — I’m going to make this, I’m going to make it better. Then you can come here,” Sisitsky said.
You can talk to people, you can work with people who can help you with the design, learn how to utilize the equipment, and make your own prototype.
“This is a huge next step in the rapidly growing innovation ecosystem in Hartford,” said Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin.
