Situated in the heart of Lopez Village, the ReMakery offers drop in maker times, classes, workshops, Repair Cafes, Maker in Residence program, and a host of other maker events. The ReMakery has industrial sewing machines, sergers, regular sewing machines, 3D printers, jewelry making, leather working tools, electronics repair and tools, and soon a laser cutter, along with host of other useful tools to upcycle and transform materials.
The goal of the ReMakery is to educate our community about the value of reduction, reuse, repair, and repurposing items locally to increase the local circular economy (see diagram below).
It provides the Lopez community with space, tools and instruction to help transform materials that might have otherwise been exported off the island and to landfill, or far away recycling centers across the globe.
The localization of reuse helps decrease green house gas emissions, creates potential revenue sources for local
makers and entrepreneurs, and most importantly, continues to keep our island's Zero Waste Mission in the forefront of the minds of the community.
Currently on hiatus for Winter - reopening Spring 2022.
