The Future of Flight Aviation Center's 3D Makerspace hosted Feb. 4 the first in a new series of workshops – on Saturdays from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on the gallery floor – with rotating themes each month.

February is dedicated to printing 3D pop-up cards with digital die cutters using associated computer design software.

Workshops are free for members and materials are included thanks to sponsorship by Community Transit.

The center also hosts Maker Mondays from 1-5 p.m. for $5 per seat and $1 per gram of printing material.
