If you're reading this on the Wiki, a full (searchable) list of materials and supplies in the Craft Room follows. (This material is still under construction, but will eventually include use instructions for using all the equipment in the room.)

If you're reading this in the Craft Room on the wall, start up the shared Craft Room laptop (in the southwestern corner of the room--the one with all the stickers on it) and have a look at the Wiki page, at http://i3detroit.com/wi/index.php?title=Craft_Room.

Notes

To Request a Change in the Craft Room

If you would like to see changes in the craft room, please contact Kevin Flory. I'm particularly interested in requests for materials or equipment you'd like to see stocked. I'll also take suggestions on new layouts you'd like to see, although I may not be able to honor all requests.

For minor restocking requests, feel free to leave a note or use the whiteboard.

To Find Help

If you'd like to find someone to give technical advice on using a specific machine or technique, or are willing to be listed as someone who can help others, please contact Kevin Flory.
