CraterWorks, A MakerSpace

What is CraterWorks MakerSpace?

We are a do-it-yourself (DIY), maker, hacker, and industrial art space that provides entrepreneurs, students, craftspeople and the average Joe a place to create and innovate in a collaborative environment. This state-of-the art, communal makerspace strives to bring people together to share the tools, knowledge and resources needed to bring ideas to life, offering more than 20,000 square feet of space with equipment for designing, prototyping and manufacturing virtually anything imaginable – all under one roof.

CraterWorks builds on the core academic and career technical education of District 6 by providing students with an immersive environment for CTE programs and connecting them with local entrepreneurs, experts in trades, and skilled artisans as they build, learn and grow alongside community members.

Since opening, the CraterWorks Makerspace has continued to attract a steady-stream of curious seekers, as our exceptionally talented collective of artists, hobbyists and community members come together to contribute to the space by teaching, supporting, collaborating and creating.  Powerful advocates for entrepreneurship, science, technology, engineering, art, and math, we are deeply involved in the educational and economic development efforts of Central Point, and encourage new product and business creation through partnerships and idea-sharing.

Get Involved

CraterWorks is a collaborative makerspace where individuals and organizations make and learn.  By sharing tools, knowledge and experience, we’re doing things better – by working together. CraterWorks celebrates craftsmanship, innovation and entrepreneurship in its many forms, and is looking to add passionate makers to their community.

Instructors

Join CraterWorks to share your knowledge and experience with our members, and potential new members as an Instructor. CraterWorks is seeking new class proposals as well as qualified individuals to teach existing classes to our community members.

Seeking programming for custom team-building workshops and classes. Classes may include shop orientations, tool and technique classes, and project-based classes.  Classes are typically 2 or 4 hours long and take place on weekday evenings and weekends. Most classes are single sessions and are offered 1-3 times per month, though more advanced project-based classes may meet at least once a week for 4-8 weeks. Class sizes are intentionally kept small to encourage hands-on engagement from every student, and generally limited to 4 or 5 students.

Qualified candidates have previous teaching experience, identify as a builder/maker, are passionate about teaching others, and will be prepared to demonstrate their skills and teaching style within a mock-workshop with select CraterWorks staff. Please send your resume and/or portfolio, references, and a statement of interest including which existing classes here at CraterWorks you’d love to teach to explore@craterworks.org
