IMG_9935Are you a tinkerer, inventor, programmer, DIYer, woodworker, artist, entrepreneur, builder, mechanic, designer, crafter, skill-sharer, or engineer?  Do you have an idea you'd like to build, but don't have access to the right tools, skills or space?  Do you want to be part of a community where people like to make things?  Well, then, we want you!

We support the creative potential of the Yakima Valley by providing the tools to make almost anything, space to build ideas, and co-learning for all ages.
 
At Yakima Maker Space we believe that making things with others is a powerful creative engine, that learning by doing teaches better than a textbook, and that access to tools and a supportive community will launch the next generation of entrepreneurs in Yakima.  We are part of the Maker Movement:  All over the country and the world, people are taking back control of the things they own. They wish to rely less on disposable technology and material goods and seek to learn how to build and fix things themselves. This renewed curiosity, combined with world-changing, easy-to-use tools like 3D printing and supercharged by neighborhood makerspaces has turned many a jaded consumer into an engaged and excited Maker.

We are here to support the creative potential of the Yakima Valley.  We want our children to have the technical knowledge to solve problems and the creative ability to think critically. We want adults to have the chance to turn an idea into a hobby and a hobby into a job.  Come on in and check us out and see how you fit in today!
