About

The Staunton Makerspace is a part of a much larger process that is taking place across the world. Here is an oppertunity to take part in a movement that is as local as it is international. Share your skills, and learn from others, to build a better, more entertaining, more enabled world.

  • Makerspaces

    A Makerspace is a community run space where people can gather to create, collaborate and learn. We hope the Staunton Makerspace will grow to support collaboration across boundaires of science and art, technlogy and craft, to invent novel objects and works of art. Check out our Equipment Wiki for more information about our tools. The Makerspace is located at 222 S. Washington St. just a few steps outside lovely downtown Staunton Virginia.

  • Co-Working

    Are you telecommuting to work, or running a small business out of your house? Co-working locations offer a collegiate working environment that provides shared resources (such as high speed internet and an espresso machine) in a clean open space that offers an office like atmosphere that can make your day a little brighter and friendlier. As the Makerspace has grown we've established an agreement with Votr (a local tech startup) to help seperate the noisy workshop from the quieter desk workers. You can find the co-working space at 101 W. Frederick St. on the third floor.

  • Prices

    You can become a member for as little as $50 per month, with no long term obligation. We have a variety of levels of membership to meet a variety of needs and interests. Please check out our Membership Levels / Price List for more information.

  • Hours / Location

    We are located at 222 S. Washington St. Just off of Middlebrook Avenue as you head out of Downtown Staunton. Visitors are welcome by appointment. Please call / text us at 540-324-9427, or email Dan@StauntonMakerspace.com to schedule a time to meet.
