What we're about

Chatt*lab is Chattanooga's only self run makerspace/hackerspace. We're a shared collective of makers that lease a space to make cool things and learn new ways of making things.

Upcoming events (4+)

Chatt*lab Makerspace Open Meeting

Business Development Center

Tuesdays are our open meetings. All in the public are welcome to attend the meeting and get tours of the makerspace after the meeting events.

On the first Tuesday's of the month we give a brief presentation of what has happened over the past month and what things are coming up. Sort of a "current state of things" kinda thing.

On other Tuesdays we have a show and tell and try to do a brief demonstration of some sort. We're always looking for new demo topics, so if you have something that takes 20 minutes or less to present, let us know, or if you have a cool thing you made and want to do a 5 minute show and tell, we'd love to see it.

If you have heard about us and want to see what we're about, show up up a little early between 6pm and 7pm and someone will be there to show you around.

Please be so kind as to RSVP if you are going to make it so we know if someone is coming. Don't worry, you don't get a sales pitch. Most of us are introverted engineers and makers and aren't into sales. We are more interested in talking about cool stuff that we make or that you make.

NOTE! When you show up, go to the side door and ring the doorbell. It might take us a minute or 2 to walk over there to let you in.

2 hour Work Weekend

Chattlab Makerspace

This is where members and friends can come in and spend an hour or two helping with clean up, improvement projects and the like. We do this each month and will pick one of our 6 labs (FabLab, MetalLab, CircuitLab, WoodLab, PCLab, CraftLab) to focus on.

No skills are necessary, though if we find out you're good at something we'll take advantage of that fact!
