About

SplatSpace (previously known as Durham Makerspace) is an upcoming multidisciplinary workshop and hackerspace in downtown Durham. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, member-driven, member-funded organization. We are looking for crafters, engineers, mad scientists, artists, programmers, tinkerers, and makers of all kinds to join our organization.

We provide members access to:

  • Wood shop
  • Metal Shop
  • Laser Cutters
  • 3D Printers
  • Electronics & Soldering Stations
  • Vinyl Cutter
  • Large Format Printer
  • Hand Tools
  • Crafting Materials and Storage
  • A Community of Knowledgeable and Passionate Makers!

During 2020 (related to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions) we hold online meetings on the first Tuesday of each month.  Once it is safe to do so, we will resume holding weekly meetings at Splatpace on Tuesday nights, as well as classes, events, and get-togethers to celebrate and share our strengths, learn from each other, and collaborate on projects.

We are a community of hackers and makers, teachers and students.  Our ultimate goal is to reach out to each other and the surrounding community to share our passion for art, technology, and innovation. Through sharing this passion, SplatSpace members contribute to the technical and artistic vibrancy of Durham, and the Triangle as a whole.

If you’d like to be involved, jump right in!  If you’ve never heard of a makerspace or hackerspace before, don’t worry.  Visit our FAQ for more details, or reach out to us directly via e-mail or our Google group.  It may seem hard to believe that our only real goal is to create a community around collaboration and innovation, but it’s true!  And we want you involved, too.

Still interested? Join us for one of our monthly online meetings (until our weekly, in-person meetings resume) or request an in-person tour of SplatSpace by emailing us at info@splatspace.org.  Everyone is welcome!
