WELCOME TO BELLINGHAM MAKERSPACE!
The Bellingham Makerspace is a non-profit community tool and skill sharing space whose mission is to provide access to tools and space and support learning to use tools and technology to bring creativity to life. We are now proudly open to the public in our new location in Bellis Fair.
Artists, Craftspeople, Tinkerers, and Inventors
The Makerspace is first and foremost a community of makers. Our group has participated in and held events for many like-minded organizations, such as the Spark Museum, Technology Alliance Group, Makers Making Change, Linux Fest, and many others, and done large scale community beautification projects such as the Garden Sphere and the PSE fence mosaic on Boulevard.
Our new location allows us to offer studio space for artists and craftspeople to have designated micro studios of their own, with worktables, chairs, and locking storage. We have ample display space, and a high visibility to walk through traffic for our members to sell their wares.
Our Hours of Operation
- Saturday – open from 11AM until 6PM
- Sunday – open from noon until 5PM
The space is available to members (via keycard access) seven days a week during normal Bellis Fair Mall hours.
To make an appointment, please contact [email protected].
Classes may be held outside regular hours. They are open to the public, and discounted for members. You’ll find more info on the classes page, here.6
Tools and Technology
Our tools and capabilities include a variety of 3d printers, laser cutting and engraving for wood and acrylic, vinyl cutting for stencils and stickers, large format printers, electronics workbenches, sewing machines, CNC machining, ceramics, screen printing, and a full woodworking and metalworking shop. Check out our tool gallery here!
Learn how to Make
Classes are offered on a regular basis, open to the public, on how to use our tools to turn your creative ideas into realities. We have a large open classroom and are always looking for more teachers who are interested in sharing their skills with our community. Check out our class offerings here!
Monthly membership provides access to our space, our online resources, and our computers, as well as discounts on classes. There is an additional small fee for machine usage which allows us to keep the machines in good working order for the community to use. At times we can provide design services, consultations, and limited production runs for individual projects. Learn more about becoming a member here!
We are a volunteer run organization, and volunteers earn great perks including free classes, membership and tool discounts, and being a part of a vibrant community. Our volunteers and community represent all walks of life, and all colors of the rainbow. We are always accepting new applicants. Find out how to become a volunteer!
