We’re a 24-7 access tool shop and craft center where you can work on projects, teach and take classes, and connect with local people and resources.
At SLO MakerSpace you will learn new skills, meet like-minded people, and use your hands to create anything you can imagine. Our 24-7 membership is an affordable way to access our state of the art equipment and become a part of the maker movement.

It’s quite remarkable that SLO at this point in time has a space like this. This is much more a trend that you see in communities much larger than ours. It really speaks to the entrepreneurial spirit of the community.Ermina Karim

Can’t say enough good stuff about this place: they’ve got everything you could need, plus great peeps and a great vibe. I’ve rented a “personal workbench” to re-establish my freelance web development business here in SLO (and, in my free time, further my evil plans for world domination– bwah ha ha ha!). It’s gone swimingly so far- stay tuned 😉Matt Gates
