The Maker Space is a learning environment where children, teens, adults and families can tinker, design and create together.

In our workshops we use real tools to make real things and re-use everyday materials in exciting ways. From woodworking and plaster casting to electronics and 3D printing, we encourage experimentation, open-ended exploration, and believe that making mistakes is a great way to learn.

Our workshops are hands-on and can get messy, so when you come to a class, don’t wear your favorite shirt!

Make Space is open to the public every weekend for our Weekend Workshops. Our workshops run Saturday and Sunday, from 1:30 –3 pm & 3:30 – 5 pm.

Each month we have a different theme for our workshops and that also changes how the workshops are structured. Our longer workshops, like Woodworking or Plaster Casting, are offered in 1 1/2 hour sessions, the first starting at 1:30 pm, and the second starting at 3:30 pm. Shorter projects, like Brush Bots or Gravity Racers, are drop-in workshops, and can be attended by stopping by Maker Space with a ticket, any time between 1:30 – 3 pm or 3:30 – 5 pm.

Please see the Calendar section for more information on current workshops.
