We’re a collaborative tool shop and craft center where you can work on projects, teach and take classes, and connect with local people and resources.

For Families and Kids

Kids 16 and under are free to use the MakerSpace with a paying adult member and 1-on-1 supervision. We also offer reduced price family add-on memberships for $30/month per additional family member over 16.

For You

Finally, there is a place for crafters, entrepreneurs, welders, woodworkers, hackers, and you, to come together to make. At SLO MakerSpace you will learn new skills, meet like-minded people, and use your hands to create anything you can imagine. Membership is an affordable way to access our state of the art equipment and become a part of the maker movement.

For Entrepreneurs and Companies

Our Personal Workspaces include a sturdy workbench and 24-7 access to the facility for a single entrepreneurial maker. The Corporate Membership option allows an unlimited number of people from an organization to share access to the MakerSpace facility during regular open hours.

For Everyone

SLO MakerSpace is a growing, diverse community that has opened up countless opportunities for the people of San Luis Obispo and the surrounding region. From what we’ve seen, there’s something here for everyone.

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.

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 😉
