Hammerspace /ˈhamər spās/ : a curious dimension where tools and
devices of any size can be placed and then brought forth
at the exact moment they are needed.
Hammerspace Hobby & Workshop: is a curious space
in Brookside where tools and devices of every size are
placed for your use at the exact time they are needed.
Hammerspace is a 7000 square foot facility which is home
to Kansas City's community of makers, crafters and inventors.
It's like a a gym for folks who build and create. It's where you go
to exercise your creativity. It's where you bulk up your knowledge,
and work out your designs.
Rip a board, sandblast a rusty tool, etch a circuit board,
3D-print a missing piece, or build a robot lawnmower.
Wood and metal working, silver and black smithing, welding,
molding, casting, soldering, electronics, robotics, rocketry,
remote control, pinewood derby, painting, or just fixing a
broken doohickey. You can learn to do it all yourself.
Ask questions that our community of users can help you to solve.
Or our Member Mentors can help guide you through the learning
process. Like a personal trainer for your workshop instead of
your workout! Hourly rates are available for mentoring services.
If you already know it all, you can share what you know.
Our teachers are community experts just like you.
Earn some money and share your knowledge too.
If you know nothing about what you need to do but need
to get it done, come use the services of Built-to-Spec design.
Craig and Jordie provide laser cutting, plasma cutting, CNC
milling and routing services as well design services to help
you create exactly what you need for your hobby or business.

The big room holds the electronics bench and soldering stations,
