A public workspace is opening in Summerside where people can swap tools and ideas.

Organizer Chris Willcock said the makerspace, the first of its kind in Summerside, will be open to people of all skill sets in a variety of creative areas, from carpentry to computer programming. 

"Many, many people on Prince Edward Island and the Summerside area do creative projects. They have problems and they solve them with their own skills," said Willcock. 

"But we don't have an existing place where like-minded people can come together to share skills and resources. And that's what we're trying to fill." 

Willcock said organizers hope to have the space set up by February with an aim of offering classes by April.
