Get a hobby and make a new friend!
Meet people with similar interests while you create! The Rivet offers skill-based classes where you can learn such things as how to use a 3D printer, miter saw, drill press, pottery wheel or embroidery machine.
The Rivet also offers project-based classes where you can make your own laser cut map, naturally imprinted plates or stackable rings. If you already have a hobby or skill, you can teach a class or use our equipment for your own projects. If you want to learn with your friends, you can schedule a class specially for your group.
