Located in the Stapleton section of Staten Island at 450 Front Street, Staten Island Makerspace offers affordable space, tools, workshops and resources to makers, builders, tinkerers, hardware developers, hobbyists, artists, entrepreneurs… literally anyone who has the drive and motivation to “make something.” Makerspace takes the “do it yourself” idea to a whole new level as it gives both skilled craftspeople and hobbyists the opportunity to make their ideas come to life. Members of Makerspace consist of artisans across a wide range of specialties that share and collaborate with one another to provide a work space to individuals who may not be able to store, afford or use tools and resources. The 6000 square-foot space includes a metal shop, woodshop, computer lab, sewing studio, jewelry station, and photography studio, as well as a shared workspace, project space, conference room and private studios.
For more information on becoming a member of Makerspace, or for information on upcoming workshops for both members and non-members, visit their website at www.makerspace.nyc or contact them at (718) 273-3951. Use Makerspace to “dream, create, make!”
