Smoke machine - openingLet’s say you live in a condo, apartment, mobile home or a place without a garage. Where are you supposed to fix your car, repaint a kitchen table or build a prototype for an invention you might have?

One answer could be a “Makerspace.” It’s like a gym for tinkering minds. A monthly fee provides access to workshop space, equipment and even some specialized tools like routers, laser cutters and 3D printers.

There is such a space in Whitehorse, called YuKonstruct.
