MakerJobs & Consulting Services

Have a project that you need help with? Our Gurus or community of makers may be able to help!


Don’t have time to come to SLO MakerSpace and do-it-yourself?  Let a SLO MakerSpace Guru Do-It-For-You.

Since we’ve opened our doors the San Luis Obispo community has come to us with creations, inventions, project requests, and repairs that we’ve been completing through our MakerJobs program. Submit a project request through the form below and a Guru or Staff Member will be in touch with you to discuss next steps. Examples of work our consulting makers have done in the past include furniture design/fabrication, sign making, CNC Routing, CAD, 3D printing, and more.

NOTE: These services are being offered by our volunteer Guru Staff and Members of our SLO MakerSpace Community. This is not their full time position here at the space or purpose of being at the space. These talented tradespeople, artists, and experts come to SLO MakerSpace to work on their own crafts/projects/businesses and provide this service as a special offer to our community.

Our Gurus and Maker Community are a valuable resource of information and some are available for 1:1 instruction. Consultants are also available for off-site groups, special events, in-classroom learning (through our Education Director, Ms. Brooke-Ashley Pool –, or equipment consulting for your home and business. These skills and hourly rates vary.
