All Pikes Peak Makes

Friday, 10/22 from 4-9PM at the Knights of Columbus Hall

Are you ready to get hands-on with some creative projects? Looking to learn more about creative organizations and resources in our community? Join us for APPM @ KCH!
This year, due to pandemic safety measures, we’ll be getting together for a smaller All Pikes Peak Makes event at the newly opened Knights of Columbus Hall. Local creative organizations will bring hands-on projects for the whole family to enjoy. Explore the world of making this October with All Pikes Peak Makes!

A maker is someone who creates – to be innovative, to solve problems, to bring something beautiful into the world, or simply to have fun. They have an idea and they bring it to life. Making can encompass just about anything, from high tech to low tech to no tech, from art to fabrication to artistic fabrication, from needles to table saws to software. Join us October 11 – 24 as we celebrate making in the Pikes Peak region – by exploring outer space as well as local maker hubs, tinkering, thinking, and, of course, making!
