The Bridgewire Makerspace is a fortress for craftsmen like Lee Elliot. Here he can be a jack of all trades. “It’s a place for people to create and invent,” Elliot.
From laser cutting equipment to 3-D printing, Bridgewire is allowing the community to use over-sized and otherwise expensive equipment.
“The nice thing about this is that you have a lot of different equipment that you can utilize and you don’t have that huge price point.”
