Haverhill hobbyists have a new outlet for creativity courtesy of downtown business owner Chris White.

The city resident and software engineer will celebrate the grand opening of his two-month-old shared maker space CreatorPult on Saturday, Dec. 2 with an open house at 143 Essex St., Suite 211 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“We’re focused on the people who have a hobby and have outgrown their space,” White told WHAV of CreatorPult, which is located in the Burgess Building near Krueger Flatbread. “My goal is to give people something that they feel they’re getting value out of.”

To that end, White has designed a shared workspace with woodworking, electronics, 3-D printing and other craft equipment for community use. Membership that allows for on-site equipment rental starts at $125 for five single day passes. A monthly option costs $150.

Regular open house hours take place on Thursdays from 6 to 8 pm., where hobbyists can drop in to ask questions or use the equipment free of charge. White also hosts Meetup gatherings at the space for the Haverhill Makers and Haverhill Hackers groups.

CreatorPult is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
