    The Roswell Firelabs Makerspace is a community of makers, but what exactly does that mean? What qualifies someone as a maker? What makes the space a community? What’s a makerspace? According to Makerspaces.com, “A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.” It’s a place for people in the surrounding area to come together and create things; what those things are is only limited by imagination.

    What are some of the things created at the Roswell Firelabs?

    Music
    Glasswork
    Etching
    3D Printing
    Sewing
    Scrapbooks
    Woodworking
    Painting
    Games & Gaming
    Robotics
    and so much more!

    There’s something for everyone when it comes to a makerspace, and that’s exactly the point. The Roswell Firelabs is driven by what members want to see and do. That’s where the collaborative part comes in. The entire idea is built around serving members and those living in the surrounding area. Classes are introduced because interest has been expressed in learning those things.

    In short, a maker is anyone who makes something, no matter the experience level. Newbies and veterans alike are welcome to join any of the classes at the Firelabs. You don’t even have to be a member to do so! While membership gives access to the space for independent projects and a reduced price on classes, everyone is welcome to come by and check out what goes on in the facility. The events page has a full list of what’s going on when and new classes are added to the calendar all the time.

    There’s no way the Roswell Firelabs Makerspace could exist without its members, though. Their monthly donations help keep the space running and contribute to acquiring new or better equipment. Volunteers take care of the upkeep and administrative duties, as well as running the wonderful classes on offer. As a charitable organization, every penny that the Firelabs makes goes back into developing the space into the best it can be.

    For those who are curious about the space or would like to visit; reach out! Questions are more than welcome through the website or Facebook page.

    Tabletop RPG One-Shot: The Haunted Mines of Golden Brooks

    The perfect introduction to tabletop role playing games, such as Dungeons & Dragons or DSR, this one-shot comes with pre-created characters and basic rules to give first timers a taste of the adventure. Also great for veteran adventurers who want something light-hearted and fun. This particular game takes place in the Wild West, where the towns are dusty, the guns are drawn, and anything is possible.

    12:00 PM – 6:00 PM

    The small town of Golden Brooks looks idealistic in its simplicity. The land around it stretches out as far as the eye can see, a large river running in the distance. As the party approaches the town, passing ranches and homesteads along the way, the details of the buildings along Main Street become more distinct through the heat waves rising off the ground. In many ways, it looks like every small town in these parts. Wooden buildings line each side of the wide, dusty road, with a few more scattered around behind to round out the town. It’s easy to spot the largest structures of the town: the general store, the saloon, and the church. While there’s nothing fancy or presumptuous about the town – not like the large house the party passed about an hour back – the buildings all look to be at least cared for and serviceable.

    There are a few people scattered about the road, doing their shopping or other errands. There’s a wagon drawn by two tired-looking donkeys sitting outside the general store. Heads come up and eyes are drawn as the party approached. Ladies in tooled dresses and men chewing tobacco on porches watch as you all pass by. You’ve been on the road for several weeks now and the thought of a cold beer and an actual mattress are nothing short of blissful.

    Thus sets the stage for The Haunted Mines of Golden Brooks, a tabletop RPG one-shot coming to the Roswell Firelabs this Saturday, the 28th. Based on Dungeons & Dragons 5e, this roleplaying game offers a simplified, basic ruleset and pre-created characters for players to step into. It’s the perfect introduction for individuals who have never played and are curious about getting their toes wet, but don’t want to dive in head-first just yet. With an estimated duration of 4-6 hours, it’s also a nice, casual game for those who have been playing a while and just want to have some fun and meet others who share their interests.

    This Wild West adventure features kooky characters, fun tales, and hilarious misadventures. The story is led by the Dungeon Master, but it is determined by the players and the choices they make. So, the question is: what will you do?

    This year has brought many firsts for the Roswell Firelabs Makerspace. The Grand Opening on May 4th was just the beginning. From there, the Roswell Firelabs has hosted a variety of classes, partnered with organizations such as Bach 2 Rock Alpharetta, and grown more and more every day. Now, the Firelabs is gearing up for another first: The 1st Annual Holiday Maker Marketplace!

    Held on December 7th from 2PM – 7PM, this fun event is the perfect opportunity to come see unique, handmade crafts and gift items from local makers as the holiday season approaches. Some of these makers will include Roswell residents (and Firelabs members) MaryJoe Jenkins, Jessica Mathis, and many more!  Wares range from jewelry to woodwork to children’s books and more, so there’s something for everyone.

    There will be snacks and hot chocolate to stave off the winter chill and a photo setup for all your holiday picture needs! The Roswell Firelabs will also offer tours of the space as well as class and membership sign ups. Those curious about the space and what goes on at the Firelabs are welcome to come by the table and ask as many questions as they’d like.

    The 1st Annual Holiday Maker Marketplace welcomes all ages, and Bach 2 Rock Alpharetta will be providing music throughout this family-friendly event. Shuttle service from the approved parking lots will be provided by Carl Black Buick GMC. The Roswell Firelabs would like to offer both groups, along with the City of Roswell, a huge thank you for all of their support in making this space and event a reality.


    If you are interested in attending as a vendor (application deadline is October 1st), please fill out an application and email the completed form to events@roswellfirelabs.org. Both indoor and outdoor spaces are available and no payment is required until applications are reviewed and approved by the committee. You do NOT have to be a member of the Roswell Firelabs Makerspace to be a vendor, but member applications will get priority.
