Meet Marissa!


Marissa is a gifted artist. She has attended and helped participants of some of our sewing meetups. She designs and makes creepy cool stuffed animals and she is in the process for writing her own animation. She is also skilled in 3D animation. She will help facilitate a community Blender group at Los Alamos Makers.

Meet Alexander!


Alexander has been a member at the Los Alamos Makers' space since 2017. He learned how to do woodworking by starting outstanding ambitious projects, some of which were displayed at the Fuller Lodge. What will you make?

Meet Sue!


"Sue Bombardt is a retired laboratory medicine professional who began creating with stained glass in 1975. She added lampwork and fused glass to her palette in 2003.

It is captivating to hear how Bombardt brings her science background to her glass art and see how creative she gets by combining the different techniques she has learned over the years to create original and beautiful pieces." 

Check out the original article on how Sue is involved at Los Alamos Makers and look for our Eventbrite calendar of events for her next class.

Meet Gordon!


Gordon is a self proclaimed "Science evangelist"!

Gordon loves anything related to Science...and the best part is that he loves to share his knowledge and skills.

He is as smart as he is kind.

Gordon and his wife are strong science education advocates. We are very lucky to have them in this town and we are very excited that will help with some classes at the makerspace.

Meet Caitlin Bain

Caitlin Bain

Caitlin was a guest maker during one of our 2017 open houses.

Caitlin makes knit dolls and animals. "They are all one of a kind and super sweet! The dolls range in size. The bigger dolls are about 12 inches tall, the medium sized dolls are about 9 inches tall and the mini dolls that come in a set of three are 5 inches tall."

In her own words: 

I started making dolls for my girls that looked like them for fun. Their friends loved them, so their parents asked me to make some for their kids too! So I began taking custom orders and took off from there!

I have an Etsy page, a Facebook page and an Instagram page:
