Lowell Makes is a membership‐driven collaborative space equipped with a wide variety of tools, machines, materials, computers and other resources where individuals can gain and practice modern skills with state‐of‐the‐art technology, access to resources they could not otherwise, and a community of creative minded people who make all kinds of things.
“Art is the Handmaid of Human Good” is both the City of Lowell’s motto, and a reminder of Lowell’s rich industrial and artistic history as our inspiration.
All members are expected to abide by the Rules & Policies listed here on the Wiki, as well as those posted within the work shops.
There are two classes of committees: administrative committees and member committees. Administrative Committees are standing and have defined scopes relating to the continued operation of Lowell Makes. Member Committees are ad hoc and formed to achieve a specific goal or run a specific project.
Lowell Makes is located in downtown Lowell, where we lease approximately 6,000 square feet of space.
