MindCraft Makerspace is a digital fabrication lab located in the Stanley Marketplace in Aurora.  We have developed as a collaborative studio space for creative and inventive endeavors.  Our combination of labs, workshop, and classrooms make it easy and fun for hands-on, “let’s make this” kind of learning for makers age 4-104.

We offer classes, workshops, equipment rental and memberships in order to make all tools, equipment, and machinery accessible to our maker community.
This year at the Maker faire, we will show participants how to make their very own light-up LED bug.   
They are super cool and super fun.

Corellian Droidworks is a local Star Wars fan club started by several original R2-D2 club builders (www.astromech.net). The club consists of droid builders, cosplay costumes, and movie prop hobbyists.

We’ve partnered with charitable entities such as Pop Culture Classroom, Lucasfilm Force for Change, Wings over the Rockies Air & Space Museum, and Children’s Hospital to help raise needed funding for these organizations and also share our passion with local communities. Not to mention several functions with private organizations and Hollywood movie studios.

A core tenet of ours is “STEM through science fiction”.We believe that within science fiction lies a nascent learning mechanism which advocates a commonplace platform to fosters kids’ interest in science-based disciplines, engineering, and technology.

We live in the diverse world full of mystery, science, fantasy and imagination! My name Is Meredith Funk & FoxyFunk Designs was created out of these facts of the fantastical!

I am a full-time nerd, mother and wife. Using Laser Power to forge my jewelry & accessories gives a unique and precise way for me to create fun & stylish designs! My list of creations is ever-growing, and I have many aspirations for FoxyFunk as the years progress!

Having been a restaurant manager for years, I was always searching for a way to reduce stress and spend more time with my family. When my husband was at a maker space one day, he brought back a fun design made from scraps for me to make into jewelry. I immediately did and when I wore them to work, everyone wanted some!

One thing led to another and now I have a thriving online business! You can usually find me at a booth (or at least having some fun) at many of the nerdy conventions and events in Colorado. Hope to see you there!

Meredith began laser cutting her trinkets two years ago and has been selling her work on Etsy and Ebay and opened up a shop of her own to sell other art and “nerd” goods.
