Get Creative at the Workshop

It may appear that CMPLD has a near endless supply of resources and activities for its patrons to choose from. Whether its our plethora of book clubs, classes on how to use Microsoft Word, or Movie Matinees every Thursday and Friday, there is surely an experience available for everyone.

If you are more of a creative type and want to learn about crafting, the Workshop provides programs and open lab hours starting in January to fill your creativity needs.

Is there a special relative’s birthday around the corner and you don’t want to spend money on a lavish card? Make incredible designs using the Silhouette Portrait 2 Vinyl Cutter found at the Workshop in the Lower Level of Cook Park.

Want a fun project to do with a real product to show for it? How about testing out the Lulzbot 3D Printer?

Here’s an Eiffel Tower being printed, how neat?! 

Perhaps vinyl cutting isn’t your cup of tea or 3D printing seems too daunting, CMPLD’s Workshop also provides a button maker and Brother Project Runway Computerized Sewing Machines to help unleash the visionary in you.

Some classes and activities may require materials (such as vinyl adhesive & iron-on vinyl sheets) which will be available to purchase for a small fee at the checkout desk. In addition to the equipment, patrons will have access to black & white thread for sewing (no charge).

  • 1 inch button sets – 10 cents
  • 2.25 inch button sets – 20 cents
  • 12×12 vinyl sheet and heat transfer paper – $1.00
