MakerLab 2RG is a gathering place! Both new and experienced makers can work on projects, access new technologies as well as traditional tools, and connect socially. It is also a workspace for people who may not have their own. MakerLab is a sounding board, a meeting place, a learning space, and a place to hang! We call it a lab because we hope you'll experiment with your creativity, learn new skills, and be inspired by what other makers are creating, both in our own community and worldwide.
If you are a: crafter, coder, artist, fabricator, knitter, educator, scientist, geek, foodie, gardener, or something else altogether - this is the place for YOU! What everyone shares is a strong belief in the do-it-yourself spirit, a willingness to try something new, and a passion for making things.
Please note: Two Rivers Gallery Members receive a 10% discount on all classes and workshops. Applicable taxes are charged on all programs.
The tools will be out and the space will be open, all that’s missing is you and your ideas! Take advantage of our multi-disciplinary workspace, and if something you’re interested in isn’t there yet, put in a request - the goal is to enable as many different types of Making as we can. What will you Make today?
Resources available for Open Make Drop-In include a wide variety of general purpose tools, silversmithing tools, electronics kit, sewing machine, 3Doodlers, Flex Shaft Rotary Tool, print making press and more!
City to host 'Thank You PG' party this Saturday:
Free outdoor concert and BBQ to thank residents and volunteers who helped wildfire evacuees
The City of Prince George is hosting a party in Canada Games Plaza on Saturday, September 23 from 4:00pm to 9:30pm to celebrate Prince George’s extremely successful efforts to welcome, assist, and care for Cariboo wildfire evacuees this summer.
The event will be headlined by multiple Juno award-winning Canadian rock group Glass Tiger with special guest Barney Bentall. DJ Ant will kick off the evening from 4:00pm until 6:00pm.
“This summer, we did something extraordinary. We welcomed more than 10,000 people into our community. 10,000 people who were fleeing wildfires in the Cariboo,” says Mayor Lyn Hall. “On behalf of Council: thank you Prince George. We’re proud of how you stepped up and showed what hospitality really means in our region. But we can do more than say it, we can show it. Please join us in Canada Games Plaza this Saturday to give yourselves and your neighbours a well-deserved pat on the back for an extraordinary job well done.”
Prince George hosted more than 10,400 evacuees this summer – more than any other BC community. As of this week, the City is now down to one Cariboo evacuee who continues to receive services. This final evacuee is scheduled to return home this week.
The Thank You PG will feature a free barbeque throughout the event provided by Save-On-Foods and cooked on Integris and Husky Energy barbeques.
