Alamance Makers Guild is a forum facilitating projects and the sharing of meaningful Maker Stories.

Makers are Extraordinarily Varied

Makers create projects using various materials with distinctive designs and diverse degrees of skill and knowledge. Projects can have artistic, practical or commercial intent. We believe all makers have one thing in common… each project is also an inspiring story.

Makers Create Project Stories

Founded in 2011 and thriving thru 2020, Alamance Makers Guild was led by our fearless founder Bennett Harris. He is now pursuing other endeavors, and we are under the leadership and vision of longtime member and supporter Nim Batchelor. We plan to continue our monthly open meetings in the form of Project Story Meetings. This is where makers gather to listen, learn and share their knowledge, ideas and projects. Everyone is welcome. Check out the calendar below for our next maker event!

EMP: Edge Computing and the Internet of Things

AMG’s “Electronics, microprocessor and programming” sub-group (EMP) is presenting a series of workshops that will enable makers to design and construct useful “edge computing” and “internet of things” devices. As a first step in this process, the EMP group is holding a “planning session” regarding this series of workshops

Alamance Video Makers

We will film and edit a short video and experience the challenges of: lighting, sound, video capture, and using editing software. There will be something for everyone to learn. If you have experience OR if you just want to improve the quality of the videos that you make, please join us.


Alamance Makers Guild Monthly Meetup

We will begin with a "show and tell" of recent projects. If you've recently made something or working on a project, then bring it in and tell us all about it. We are planning to have a special invited speaker.
