Urban Workshop

The Maker Movement is growing and Makerspaces are popping up all over the country, Orange County is no exception.  With President Obama’s declaration of  June 18th as a National Day of Making and Mini Maker Faires continuing to blossom in all 50 states, as well as around the world, we are becoming a #NationOfMakers.  One of the newest additions is Orange County’s own Urban Workshop which will hold a soft open celebration on Tuesday July 15th.

Recently Urban Workshop owner Steve Trinidade invited members of the OC Mini Maker Faire to hold their Make:OC  Let’s Build a Smoker! Meet-up in the brand new facility.  We built some smokers, ate some great smoked food and got a sneak peek at some of the cool things Urban Workshop has to offer.

From the website: “The facility includes 3D printers, laser cutters, a welding shop, wood shop, machine shop, CNC mills, Textiles area, vinyl cutters, electronics lab, and computer lab. Members have access to advanced software including SolidWorks, Photoshop,  illustrator, and more. A huge work area with large tables, compressed air and electricity is ideal for working on projects and collaborating with others.”
