We aim to foster a community of makers by providing an environment in terms of people, equipment and space that supports the creative process and personal growth. In our space you’ll find people into electronics, robots, wood working, embedded software, metal working (including welding, forging and casting) music, art, video, photography, electric cars, sewing, textiles, printing and much more. We’ve found that having such people pursuing their interests in close proximity to one another leads to a lot of productively, personal satisfaction and some amazing collaborative projects. Join us on a Tuesday night at 7pm when we're open to the public!

    We tend to hover around 350 members now, and we're in the process of adding a second location (just two miles south of our current location.) The second location will probably be ready for makers by the end of 2020 or middle of 2021.

    Yeah, we passed the 250 mark and have about 260 members in our 16,000 square foot space. We just got a Tormach CNC Mill and things are looking up!

    We've got over 200 members now. It occasionally gets a bit crowded, but we've increasing the skills available to everyone. Also, once we take over the McDonalds next door, we can expand!

    We're recently broken the 150 member mark, and financially, we feel we are pretty sustainable. This is a great landmark for Milwaukee Makerspace!

I have some older hardware that I want to donate to a maker.

I can send specs.

Is anyone interested?
