Welcome to Port City Makerspace, the co-op shop for Portsmouth New Hampshire!

Port City Makerspace is a welcoming and inclusive community workshop that provides tools, knowledge, and a collaborative culture to encourage the artist and maker in everyone. We are organized and operated as a New Hampshire 501(C)(3) Non-profit Organization. In this environment members work both independently and collaboratively to research ideas, develop projects and put their heads and hands to good use.

We have shop spaces dedicated to wood-working, metal-working, automotive and bicycles, electronics and 3D printing, and a classroom space which can be used for many more things. We are open to the public and no experience is necessary, so please stop in, check us out, and see what the space can provide for you. There are lots of reasons that you need tools in your life, and we are willing to help in any way we can.

Five easy ways you can join us:

1. Attend a class or a meet up at the space to get a feel for what its like working in the shop.
2. Come to an Open Hack Night on Friday nights from 6-8 to hang out with other makers.
3. Get a Port City Maker and be a part of our community.
4. Sign up for 24/7 Maker’s Guild membership and use the space any time! Click for more membership information.
5. Sign up for a whole year and become a regular!
