The MINT Maker Space is making more space.
The facility on Quality Lane is poised to add 9,100 square feet and a variety of new equipment, organizers said Monday, expanding its offerings for area entrepreneurs and tinkerers.
“We’re looking at a pottery studio, textiles, a printing studio,” said Karen McCalla, executive director and “maker evangelist.” “We have a new bike maintenance, repair and building shop.”
McCalla said the latter was the result of Morgan Over joining the organization and bringing equipment with her from her now-defunct Castleton bicycle shop.
“People will be able to build their bike from scratch using our stuff or just bring bikes in for repairs,” McCalla said.
Another section of the expansion feature a screen-printing lab with a four-color press and another will hold a letter press studio.
