We’d like to welcome anyone who heard that story, and anyone else for that matter, to our semi-regular Open Shop Friday. Starting around 6pm, the doors will be open. Come in and meet a few members, we’ll be doing tours and intros all night. Bring a project to work on, bring a friend, but most of all, bring your curiosity!
Ever dream of a place where you could build and craft your heart’s desires?
A place to find other Do-It-Yourself-ers and get tips and advice?
A place where you could learn to use and have access to tools that would never fit into your garage or your budget?
That place exists, today. Welcome to i3Detroit.
Here at i3Detroit, we want to create and build, probably much like yourself. We’re not a profit-driven tool rental center, we’ve got a burning passion to create, tinker, hack and make, one that drives us to create the best possible community and space. Our members take pride in what we’ve built, and for good reason. We’ve got such a diverse range of things to create with here, and we’ve done it all as a highly-engaged volunteer community with a passion for things such as crafting, woodworking, metalworking, electronics, welding, programming, and digital fabrication!
Located near the heart of Ferndale, we’re close to many local events and an amazing community. If you’re curious about, or never heard of a Makerspace, then swing on by on a Friday evening or a Tuesday meeting night to take a tour and get to know the membership!
Excited? Gotten this far? Come see us! You’ll find this is just the place you’ve been looking for!
See you soon!
Check out what we’ve been up to!
There is a Major League Gaming tournament this weekend in Raleigh. The plan is to watch the stream of the Starcraft 2 championship on Sunday from 6pm-11pm at i3Detroit with fellow SC2 enthusiasts. If there is a growing interest in “Barcraft” events, then next time I’ll talk with a bar owner and try to organize something. We aren’t alone. This week there was a Wall Street Journal article about folks watching Starcraft in bars. Sadly there is no Michigan event which is why I’m trying this at i3.
So if you want to see what eSports is all about be at i3 this Sunday (8/28/2011) at 6pm. We’ll order some pizza and watch the Champions duke it out. BYOB.

We like all of our members to come check the space out and meet a few of the members before becoming a part of the community. Our signup process requires prospective members to get familiar with a community-run organization before joining.
