What Is CraterWorks MakerSpace?

We are a do-it-yourself (DIY), maker, hacker, and industrial art space that provides entrepreneurs, students, craftspeople and you with a place to create and innovate in a collaborative environment. 

This state-of-the art community 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 Staff

Taneea Browning
General Manager

As manager, Taneea works to bring the CraterWorks potential to life for the entire community, developing programs, building relationships and meeting with teachers, students and businesses to establish partnerships, all with the goal of creating an interdependent and economically sustainable local community. Taneea also serves as Executive Director of the nonprofit Direct Involvement Recreation Teaching (D.I.R.T.)


Ryan Wilcoxson
Director of Operations & Development

Ryan’s history of making stuff started early in his youth building astonishingly unsafe bike ramps out of scrap wood and rusty nails. In the ensuing decades, he obtained his BA in Cinematic Arts & Technology, owned a San Francisco-based design studio, and founded a successful nonprofit makerspace in 2016. Today,  Ryan is glad to be part of the CraterWorks community and is here to help creative innovation thrive.


Rachel Andras
Education Project Developer

Rachel has been teaching adults and kids for the past 25 years. With a Bachelors of Science in School & Community Health Education with a focus in Biology, her formal training led her to strengthen her teaching skills, development of schools & summer camps, shop management, customer service, and entrepreneurship. Being in community and empowering others is her jam.

Having a mentor is awesome, whether they walk through or just spitball ideas- irreplaceable. Having the right tools from the start, especially when you are doing something new
- member, Andrew Paterson

As our membership base of thinkers and makers continues to grow, so does our small-but-mighty crew. Operating as a collaborative team, each CraterWorks staff member and steward brings their own diverse set of innovative skills and experiences to support our shared passion of fueling creative expression in the community. Whether they’re teaching classes, developing partnerships or making something incredible, these are the people who help make CraterWorks what it is.

Having access to the braintrust or the shop masters, members,
and other CraterWorks staff really helped
