Imagine a place where creatives gather. Where thoughts and concepts are fabricated, tested, incubated and developed into highly valued works of genius. Houston Makerspace is that place. 

As of April 12th, 2014, Houstonians now have access to an unparalleled arena of workspace offerings including a wood shop, metal shop, rapid prototyping lab (read: lasercutters and 3D printers!), screen printing studio, letterpress shop, jewelry studio, and sewing and textiles lab. We have recently obtained equipment for ceramics, glassblowing, and blacksmithing and have begun build-out on our 10,000 square foot community garden. Classrooms and studio space are also available.

Houston Makerspace takes the risk of opening and operating your own space out of the equation and reduces it to a fixed cost on which to base your business plans. You only pay for what you use, removing the burden of long leases. It's like a gym, for makers!

Start with us, grow with us, make with us!


We are in the process of making our home at 100 Hutcheson Street in the Greater East End. Read the post below for more information about our location. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and subscribe to our mailing list to stay up to date on our progress!


We are pleased to announce that we have secured a space in the heart of East Downtown

at 100 Hutcheson Street!

In this location we will provide our members with more than 21,000 square feet of space to meet the needs of our diverse maker community. This space will house our initial shops, providing areas for those interested jewelry fabrication, screen printing, rapid prototyping, carpentry/metal work, and sewing and textiles. We will also have classrooms to house our educational programs in addition to over 5,000 square feet of climate controlled office/studio space and a coworking lounge for an individualized focus. All guests will have access to both fenced and secure car parking and also a 10,000 square foot green space which will serve as our community garden.

The large open shop area will house our wood and metal working equipment, while the built out first floor will house our other shops, classrooms, lobby and coworking space!

The 6,000 square foot mezzanine will eventually be climate controlled and built-out for private offices and studios.

There is a lot of power in this warehouse.

Our warehouse was built in 1970 and manufactured buoys for the off-shore drilling industry until 2012.

This large green space will soon be a community garden run by the great folks over at Edible Earth Resources!
