What we're about

Welcome to Pikes Peak Makerspace!

Where America's mountain makers go to create!

Located in Colorado Springs, Colorado and home to America's mountain - Pikes Peak - we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to supporting our maker community in their creative process by providing the materials, access to tools, and knowledge base they need to turn their ideas into a reality. We offer training classes on most of our more complex machines that you can view right here! Whether you are a novice trying to learn something new or an experienced maker in need of tools and community, you are welcomed here!

We relay heavily on donations and dedicated volunteers. Therefore, if you are interested in donating materials or equipment or have the time to give back, we greatly appreciate it! You can check out our donations page (https://pikespeakmakerspace.org/support-us) here and see what we need or contact us (https://pikespeakmakerspace.org/Contact) directly.
