Makers in Chicago is here to help you discover local maker spaces.

If you’re a maker space, and not listed, please contact us . We want to add you!

If you’re thinking “What’s a maker space?” Time Magazine published a nice overview of the Maker Movement. There are different types of makerspaces, but the idea is you get to make the stuff you want to make, with people who also want to make stuff. You can learn on your own, or with new friends.

We hope you find a few spaces you like, or create the space you’ve always wanted. If you do, don’t forget to let us know so we can add you to our map.
