SLO MakerSpace lives and breathes in thanks not only to our community partners and you, our members, but also to the hearts and efforts of our volunteer directors and able staff. This grassroots, one-of-a-kind creative space has been part of San Luis Obispo since 2012.


We have created SLO MakerSpace in order to foster a feeling of

can-do connectedness grounded in the ideals of recycling and renewal.

At SLO MakerSpace you will find a variety of tools and working spaces, some new and some refurbished.

As a community space, we are always open to discussing donations and often get new tools and as a member, it is your job to stay up to date with the tools and safety rules in the shop. If more than 3 months or so passes without us seeing you we require re-orientation to the spaces you love to use so you have the most up-to-date information.

We will do our best to support your making efforts and want to be sure to note

we are not able to provide project materials or consumable items such as bits, sandpaper, or glue

and we cannot store your projects long-term.

Below is a list of the tools we have on hand which is subject to change.
