Makers are inclusive communities of inventors, entrepreneurs, engineers, artists, roboticists, software and hardware enthusiasts, ham radio operators, machinists, architects, botanists, electricians, and others who like to invent, create, or otherwise change and improve stuff. They seek to join in collaborative efforts and foster community.
Makerspaces are a gathering space that offer classes, storage space for projects, workspace and in some cases an astounding array of shop tools (drill presses, lathes, CNC, 3-D printers, pottery kilns, metal casting equipment…) Not all Maker groups have community space, but each space is as unique as the people that gather and use it.
We started this list of Makers groups and spaces from the most prominent web-search results, and Makerspaces mentioned in news articles. It is by no means complete and we could use your help to fill it out. We welcome Makerspaces from outside the U.S. to the list as well.
If you would like to submit a Makers Group, please use this submittal form. (Please see note: Some Makers Groups may have a membership fee, but most groups will allow you to attend a few meetings or events for free. Please contact the specific Makers Group for details.)
