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. Visit us from 9am-9pm Thursday-Saturday and Sunday noon-6pm at 16 S. 1st Street in Downtown Yakima or call 509-972-6430 for an appointment.
