WHAT IS A
MAKERSPACE?
Makerspace
“A Makerspace is a learning environment rich with possibilities. As new
hardware and software tools for making, digital design, and fabrication are
emerging, we’re working together — with teachers and community leaders
— to place those tools into the hands of a wider audience. We’re building the
infrastructure for more kids and adults to connect to a future in which they
can personally change, modify or “hack” the physical world, creating things
that were nearly impossible to do on their own just a few years ago. Making is
about getting hands-on, using these new technologies and basic tools, to do
real and personally meaningful work.”

COMMUNITY
The community is the core of any
makerspace organization. Members
are a mix of artists, engineers, skilled
trades, farmers, teachers, just about
anyone who has a passion to build
something. Members fund and
maintain the space via monthly dues.
Through this collaborative effort the
community can learn and do more
than a single individual. Lowering the
barrier for the path of creation and
invention.
HTTP://SHAKMAKERSPACE.COM
SPACEThe physical location where the
community resides. Spaces range
from small garages or library rooms
to larger warehouse spaces.
Some spaces offer project areas for
longer builds or studio spaces. Many
spaces offer 24x7 access. Spaces
are typically maintained and
governed by the community.
The space is a good place to hold
classes and engage the community
through open nights during the
week.

TOOLS
Hand Tools,
Electronics Equipment,
Machining, Woodworking,
3D Printers, Kilns ...
Tools acquired and
maintained by the
makerspace community.
Many makerspaces are non-
profit so those unused tools in
the shed can be used as a tax
deduction.
