Medbery Makerspace: Take our Certification Workshop
Medbery Makerspace, 209 Hodges Library--a staff member assists a user

The Medbery Makerspace in 209 Hodges Library welcomes all students, faculty, and staff in the UT Knoxville community to create, draft, dream, and make. Tools provided fall into the general categories of arts and crafts, textiles, and fabrication (3D printing, Cricut vinyl cutter, button makers). An online guide provides additional information.

To use the makerspace’s sewing machines, 3D printers, or the Cricut tool, users must first gain certification. Users can register online for a 30-minute certification workshop — offered multiple times each week. Because workshops are hands-on, each workshop is limited to six participants.

The Medbery Makerspace is currently open 8 a.m. – 7 p.m., Monday – Thursday, and 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Friday. All are welcome to drop by and explore.
