our Workshops

Our makerspace is dynamic and diverse, like our community. For eight years we have enjoyed building Ideaworks in downtown Fresno, creating an array of shops, studios, classrooms, and common spaces where our members and students can let their imaginations run wild! The workshops themselves are an ongoing project as we renovate our historic building and respond to the wants of our members.
