We celebrated Harry Potter’s birthday with a pair of programs at The HUB.

First, teens used The HUB’s makerspace to create their own Potter-themed necklace. Then, kids designed their own wands with paint, glitter and gems.

It was a crafty way to celebrate one of our favorite characters.

By the way, there’s never been a better opportunity to use The HUB’s state-of-the-art makerspace. We’ve expanded The HUB’s hours to noon to 8 p.m. on Monday through Thursday.

The HUB’s makerspace has a green-screen studio (complete with camera and editing equipment,) laser engraver, vinyl cutter, T-shirt press, large format printer, spiral binder, button maker, 3D pens, sticker printer, and mini-laminator.

People can use any or all of these machines to make the project of their dreams. They don’t need to be a student at Mentor High School or even a resident of Mentor. All they need is a CLEVNET card in good standing. Click here for more details or to make a reservation.
