we are open!

As of June 17, 2020 we are open at both locations on a limited schedule. Members can access both spaces and use the equipment Wednesday through Sunday 10 am to 4 pm. 

All classes and tool training for members and non-members will be scheduled as private lessons rather than group activities at this point. Some limited group classes may be scheduled in our outdoor Maker Park in Staten Island.  More information here. 

We require anyone entering either space to wear a face mask and we follow strict cleaning guidelines for staff and members. 

Thank You!

A heartfelt thank you to all our  community partners, supporters and volunteers. Thanks to your help, we made and distributed over 10,000 face shields to local health care and social service facilities.  Our community partners at La Colmena and The Worker's Justice Project continue to sew face masks for the community.

ABOUT US

 

The possibilities of making are endless and at your fingertips

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MakerSpace NYC was founded in 2013 after the studio and metal shop of artists, DB Lampman & Scott Van Campen was flooded by Hurricane Sandy.  Thanks to funding from the NYCEDC and the many volunteers who gave their time, advice, skills and hard work, we opened Staten Island MakerSpace on October 28, 2013.

 

Since 2013, the organization has grown to become a cultural anchor in the borough, and helped thousands of creative entrepreneurs get their start. In addition to a vibrant makerspace, our staff and a team of volunteers have created a sculpture park in Staten Island that provides artists with the opportunity to create large scale public art. Our education department has flourished and we are proud to have provided STEM and arts education to tens of thousands of students all across the city. In the 2018-19 school year we taught over 18,000 K-12 students in New York City schools. 

In early 2019 we partnered with the New York City Economic Development Corporation to open the Futureworks MakerSpace at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. Because of this expansion, the organization re-branded to MakerSpace NYC. The new space has the same community focused approach but, also is being used to encourage entrepreneurship, advanced manufacturing and product development. Our memberships at both locations are cross honored, so you can take a blacksmithing class in Staten Island in our outdoor sculpture park, and go to Brooklyn to use the water-jet cutter or the industrial sewing machines. 

The expansion into Brooklyn makes us New York City's Largest and best equipped makerspace
