Workshops

Makerspace YK has hosted a number of workshops in Yellowknife. Makerspace YK does not currently have a permanent location, so many of these workshops were offered outside, or in collaboration with other organizations. A huge thank you to Rising Youth for supporting many of Makerspace YK's workshops.
