Join PSE employees and the Bellingham Makerspace for the next ARTility installation on the Sehome Substation Fence in Bellingham. This project is designed to promote beautification in our community by working with local artists to install art on PSE owned infrastructure across the Puget Sound. The Sehome Substation will present a unique opportunity to showcase the locally loved “Bellingham Flag” design that will be represented in numerous mosaic acrylic pieces, to be installed by volunteers and PSE employees. In addition, this PSE sponsored program is supporting students experiencing homelessness to participate in career connected STEM enrichment experiences through Bellingham Makerspace new TechX youth program. The installation includes tying acrylic pieces to the substation fence. No experience necessary and a great opportunity to help beautify a PSE asset.

Learn how to accurately cut and assemble pieces to make a box. Sounds deceptively simple, but the skills you’ll acquire are the building blocks of furniture, cabinets, rough framing, or even just more boxes!
This is a terrific introductory class for new carpenters looking to learn the basics around a tool bench and it provides an ideal foundation for more complicated woodworking projects in the future! The unique box you build can be hung up on a wall and used as a bookshelf, display case, storage container or shadow box. By using reclaimed building materials from The RE Store, participants will learn how select, work with, and get the most out of reclaimed and salvaged lumber, tools, and more. Come join The Foundry and The RE Store in creating something new out of something old.
This past Saturday we joined together with The Spark Museum of Electrical Invention to host the LipSync buildathon where we successfully made 18 LipSync devices that were donated to the Makers Making Change cause: connecting makers to people with disabilities to create open-source assistive technologies.
