What we're about

The Des Moines Makerspace is a non-profit community of makers, tinkerers, artists, and hobbyists. Our shared workspace offers the tools and space you need to make your projects a reality. Need help? Our informal classes, user groups, and shared expertise will help you develop the skills you need to finally start your dream project.

Curious yet? Visit us any Tuesday evening from 7 – 9PM for an open house where you can tour the workshop and meet some of our members or post a message to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/dsmhackerspace if you have questions!

You can find us at 1731 Grand Ave., Des Moines, IA, 50309 or http://www.area515.org for more information!
