What if you could make almost anything?


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 want our children to have the technical knowledge to solve problems and the creative mind to think critically. We want adults to have the chance to turn an idea into a hobby and a hobby into a job.

We are here to support the creative potential of the Yakima Valley by providing the tools to make almost anything, space to build ideas, and a co-learning environment for all ages.

Yakima Maker Space was once again proud to be a part of the Fresh Hop Ale Festival, held on Oct. 1, 2016.  This year we brought a team of makers to bear on a super-cool project: the Yakima Maker Space Touchscreen Selfie Station.  An old casino touchscreen, a Raspberry Pi, a webcam, and some woodworking - all combined to create something new!  Check out some sample photos from the debut of this fun project.  Special thanks to YMS member Chad Smith for working through the code!

YMS @ the Central Washington State Fair

Yakima Maker Space has been working the Fair again this year!  Special thanks to Bob Rutherford, Chris Childers, Shawn Rich, John Lease, Jason White, Jeremy Wuitschick, and all the other volunteers that help make this happen.  Making something great for the Yakima Valley!


From Sewing Machines to Laser Cutters, Table Saws to 3D Printers, we have a vast array of shop spaces and tools for you to use.
