Makers Space/Market “Makers Program”
Shop space/trades classes including the construction of Supportive Housing Tiny Home Dwellings. The space, products produced within the Space, and knowledge and work skills gained to empower and equip residents as they move towards self sufficiency are all part of the Makers Program. Items made by individuals/residents will be able to be sold onsite/online to create a source of income for the residents along with other local 406 Makers. “Maker Shadowing” with established artisans working in conjunction with New Now will also be part of the jobskill/entrepreneurial training.
A membership that allows public individuals to use shop space, tools and take advantage of classes offered for a monthly fee. Members can purchase materials from The Salvage Yard at discounted rates. If products created are able to meet and or surpass a quality review by Senior Makers/Jury, they may be offered the chance to sell in The New Now Store. Membership for residents is on a sliding scale.
Fees go to support operational costs, as well as act as an income for residents.
