Announcing the Claremont Makerspace April & May Artist in Residence!

TwinState MakerSpaces is thrilled to announce the Claremont MakerSpace Artist In Residence for April and May: Ernest Montenegro! Ernest Montenegro is a Claremont-based sculptor who works primarily in bronze and steel. During his residency, Ernest will be leveraging the CMS’s woodshop and metalshop to create a new, large-scale sculpture, and will be running introductory classes on casting and mold-making. You can learn more about Ernest and see his work at

TwinState MakerSpace’s Artist in Residence program is supported in part by a grant from the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts – for which we are incredibly grateful!
