Yakima Maker Space

Yakima Maker Space

Since its beginning in 2013, Yakima Maker Space has evolved from a simple tool-lending library to a dynamic center for creativity and learning. Yakima Maker Space is an integral resource for community and business development, offering a diverse range of tools and educational opportunities.

Maker Space boasts an impressive array of tools and equipment, fostering a rich environment for creativity and craftsmanship. Members have access to high-tech gadgets like a laser engraver, screen printing tools, and an array of 3D printers.

For textile and design enthusiasts, there are light-duty and heavy-duty sewing machines, complemented by various graphic design software.

The space is further equipped with a complete woodshop, featuring a CNC router table, a drill press, sanding machines, and numerous hand tools, all designed to assist in bringing any project to life.
