Our classroom makes possible functions which are impractical due to dust and noise elsewhere in the space. Its use can be reserved on our Google calendar, similarly to the common area. Please see HOWTO Host an Event at i3Detroit.
The zone slogan is "OH YEAH! IT'S KOOL-AID MAN" as a reference to the Classroom Wall which existed when this room was the kitchen.

Craft Room's Sewing Table / Fabric Cutting Table and Mat

The classroom currently (before Side B Expansion) shares space with the Craft Room and some of that zone's equipment resides in here too. Of particular note is the 8 ft. × 4 ft. Fabric Cutting Table and Mat attached to the north wall, mounted via a wench and pulley system.
The classroom's White Board is attached to the bottom of this table. Usually this table is put away, leaving the white board exposed for its intended use.
Use of this table / mat is discouraged for classroom activities outside of the scope and purview of Craft Room operations and its access and use is restricted. Mounting and putting away this special table requires training from Craft Room coordinators / wardens. See this equipment's page for more details.


This is a member maker project featuring an electronic view port iris that allows for viewing (or not) into the classroom.

Possible Future Classroom Improvements

(Note: These are possible improvements, but this list is not necessarily planned)

Acrylic Sign

Add Magnetic Acrylic Signs Holder for Classroom.

Wall Mount

Add hooks, cups, and storage to keep items off the tables. This includes TV remote control, meeting cowbell, etc.

Wall Electrical

Add electrical outlet strip on walls for users. Since all the tables are the same height, electrical outlet strips can be set at a uniform height.

Conference Calls

Add equipment to allow for easier conference calls, including conference-grade microphones and cameras.


Ceiling Tiles: Repaint White for Aesthetics.
Change Door Hinges to black to harmonize with paint.
Change/paint wall plates black to harmonize with paint.

Acoustic Tiles

To create better acoustic environment for presentations. Add acoustic tiles. Maybe have a sound dampening sliding curtain for hallway.

Door Stop

Add door stop to East Door to prevent door slamming. Additional Magnets to keep door in place.


Frosted White Glass Whiteboard?

Expansion Plan Impact

(Needs additional work to list out specifics)

Once the sewing zone is completed, the cutting Mat in the classroom will be moved there. This may include the whiteboard, so an alternate source must be planned for and secured.


High Priority

Air Conditioning

Need to be fixed for the summer

Medium Priority


Add caulk to trim, especially lower trim, to prevent water ingress.

Ceiling Tiles

Need to repainted and repaired


Needs to be refinished to allow for better cleaning.


Remove Rust & possibly repaint.
