The Building Bridges to Careers Makerspace in Marietta is reopening on June 8 after closures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

It also offers courses in a number of creative endeavors like fiber arts, woodwork, stained glass, and others for those who are casually interested as well as those hoping to turn their hobby into a business.
