What we're about

It's like a a gym for folks who build and create. It's where you go to exercise your creativity. It's where you bulk up your knowledge, and work out your designs. Rip a board, sandblast a rusty tool, etch a circuit board, 3D-print a missing piece, or build a robot lawnmower. Wood and metal working, silver and black smithing, welding, molding, casting, soldering, electronics, robotics, rocketry,remote control, pinewood derby, painting, or just fixing a broken doohickey. You can learn to do it all yourself. Ask questions that our community of users can help you to solve. Hammerspace is full of creative members who may be able to help you with your project. Or our Member Mentors can help guide you through the learning process. Like a personal trainer for your workshop instead of your workout! Hourly rates are available for mentoring services. Professional laser cutting and CNC routing 3D printing services are available to the general public and members alike. Digital drafting services are available as well. Classes are held at the space frequently and these will be listed on the calendar at our website. Come join Kansas City's creative community of makers!

The NEW HammerSpace Community Workshop

Every Thursday, the members of Hammerspace gather to socialize, network, and meet new members of the space. We welcome the community at large to come down during this time to explore the workshop, check out all of the tools, fabrication equipment and work space made available to HammerSpace members, and ask questions of our community of Hammerspace users. There is plenty of off-street parking, a kids playroom available for tiny makers, and the evening is always the origin point of new and amazing creative ideas. Tours are led every 30 minutes for those curious about the tools and capabilities of the facility and staff. This is a free event, open to the public.
