• Counterpoint Hackerspace

    There's a new hackerspace in Roswell called Counterpoint Hackerspace. They've just moved in to their new space as of October 2016. Their website doesn't have a lot of info as of yet. From their Meetup Page:

    We are Counterpoint. Counterpoint is a hackerspace for technical-creative projects, doocratically run by our members. We are a non-profit educational institution intended for public benefit. Come and visit our space located in Roswell, Georgia. We teach, we learn, we share.

  • Decatur Makers

    Decatur has a MakerSpace off of Ponce. See their Decatur Makers Website, which is nicely done. As of this writing, it looks like they're still in build-out, but we'll be keeping an eye on them.

  • Mass Collective

    MASS is an acronym for music, art, science, and social. We are an organization that thrives on good ideas with creative, professional, and inventive by-products. See their website for more info.

  • The Homestead Atlanta

    OK, I'll admit it: This isn't exactly the usual open hardware entry you find on these pages. But I think their philosophy of "Empower yourself to become a producer instead of a consumer" works with the entire sharing/growing/giving mindset of the open community. So with that, here's the link to TheHomesteadAtlanta.com. Which seems to offer a large number of excellent classes on becoming more self-reliant around the urban homestead. From food, to knitting, blacksmithing, woodworking, etc. The local makerspaces offer classes in welding and fabricaiton and have lathes and saws available, so I think this dovetails well (a woodworking term, by the way). Sign up and have fun.
