Community, creativity, and collisions are what Makerspace is built on. More than just a cool space, we provide opportunities for people to learn, experience something new, meet and work with like-minded creators, and find unexpected collaborations in an environment with a supportive community that is happy to share ideas and resources and celebrate wins.
Our mandate is to create an inspired, vibrant, and supportive space where the entrepreneurial spirit thrives and inventive pursuits materialize.
