To serve our growing membership and increased outreach and capabilities, MakerSpace Charlotte secured an 11,600 square foot facility in April 2019. In this new space, we will be leasing Office space to like-minded startups and entrepreneurs as well as providing Stall/Studio space for makers and artists. This new facility will have two dedicated Classrooms, a larger Metal Shop, expanded Craft/Print/Engraving Lab areas, a new Cosplay/Sewing area, Robotics, expanded Electronics, Pottery, areas for relaxation and collaboration including a casual Kitchen, and much more. Our allocation of expanded shop space would be determined by popularity and feedback from our membership and members offering to organize, plan, and shepherd each section of the space.

Here’s a proposed map of how our new MakerSpace might have its work areas allocated:
