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.

Membership

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!
