CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Roni Langley says some of her art pieces can take up to 10 hours to make and they’re all handmade.

"A tool will never do just as well as your hand," Langley said while making a circular art piece.

What makes this artwork unique is that she layers it with a material called resin, which was originally used as a boat sealant. Resin is a hard plastic material that can be snapped, but not easily.

Over the last year, Langley has worked hard to perfect her work, but what you might not realize is that she is partially colorblind.

"When I was in high school I painted this galaxy piece and was getting all the colors wrong," Langley said.

Langley said red colors tend to all blend together, but blues and whites she sees perfectly fine. Recently at the age of 23, she was able to make this her full-time job. But that meant her current living situation wasn’t going to work as her workspace. She was living with three other girls, three dogs, a cat, two fish, and two snails.

Last month, she started searching around and found out about the non-profit MakerSpace in Charlotte. Members pay a monthly fee and have access to all sorts of equipment such as 3D-printers, laser cutters, sewing machines and more. MakerSpace President Steven Gray says the space can be useful to all sorts of people.

"Artists, entrepreneurs, seniors who are looking to give back and share their knowledge with others," Gray said. "It's also for people starting out their careers or people that just want to work on whatever crafts or art interests them."

The cost a basic membership, which includes a whole family, is $50 a month. This includes access to all equipment and tools. Individual business owners who want their own personal workspace have to pay an additional fee based the size of their workspace. MakerSpace helps students and families and also have spaces to rent for artists.
