Get in here and make something! The invitation and mantra comes from the founders of The Village Workshop
, a new business under construction in downtown Northville that is seeking inventors, artists and people with ideas for its affordable workspace.
The Village Workshop is scheduled to open this summer in a space being renovated at 455 E. Cady Street inside the abandoned Belanger. Members will have access to "the latest and greatest equipment, tools, software, and skilled staff" that can take their skills and ideas to market, says Brian Donovan, one of the co-founders along with Chris McDonald, who brings experience from a career in steel and autos.
The maker space movement is bubbling up across the country, giving budding entrepreneurs, builders, techies, artists and more a place to work without the burden of major overhead.
TechShop, a maker space believed to be the first nationwide open access public workshop, has a location in Allen Park.
