What is Hammerspace?

Hammerspace /ˈhamər spās/ : a curious cartoon dimension where tools and devices of any size can be placed and then brought forth at the exact moment they are needed.

Hammerspace Workshop: is a curious space in Kansas City 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. Hammerspace is full of creative members who may be able to help you with your project.

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. You can 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.  Built-to-Spec provides laser cutting, plasma cutting, CNC milling and routing services as well as design services to help you create exactly what you need for your hobby or business.

Hammerspace members enjoy access to the wood shop, metal shop, CNC room, art room, smithing tools, hand tools and shop supplies. The shops have 1200 amp 3-phase power, distributed compressed air and central dust collection.

We have power tools both large and small, from table saws to CNC routers and laser cutters.  Vacuum forming tables and kilns, forges and even smelting furnaces are available.

The big room holds the electronics bench and soldering stations, large tables for projects and a classroom space with whiteboard, projector and many tables and outlets for laptops provide a quieter place to meet other makers and share ideas and projects.

All ages of makers are welcome. A "Little Makers Room" is provided for makers too small to build with power tools.

The Snack Bar is open during office hours to provide you with the brain fuel a creative mind needs to stay focused.
