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!
