The Make it Space is a non-profit 501(c)3 makerspace where children, families, and individuals can come together to create, build, learn, and have fun together with a community of like-minded people.


Our vision is a place where creativity abounds, exploration is encouraged, and we learn together. We welcome makers of all ages.


Join as an individual or family and receive the benefit of using the Make it Space during all of our member hours to prototype, build, utilize equipment, and be a part of a community of artists, craftsmen and those both learning and honing their craft.

After School & Weekend Classes

In our after school and weekend classes your children will be engaged in exciting projects such as robotics, woodworking, knitting, crocheting, and crafting of all types. During these sessions, ideas and inspiration will be the springboard for exploration.

Community Classes

We are excited to offer workshops by local artisans. If you have an idea for something you want to learn or teach please contact jennifer@makeitspace.org .
