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.
