We’re a MakerSpace

Build it here. Everything you need to make your ideas come to life – from 3D printing, CNC machining and rapid prototyping all the way to baking, textiles and even traditional boatbuilding.

What is a MakerSpace?  It’s a workshop, tool, fabrication and creative co-op, along with a collaborative community.  Members pool together resources to make impossibly expensive technology available.  The community pools talent, support and ideas to make new solutions happen.

See what we’re putting together for you, here.

We’re Innovators and Entrepreneurs

Bring your ideas to life, with support from mentors, innovators and entrepreneurs.  Partnering and sharing workspace with some of the most talented, experienced and knowledgeable mentors who are committed to growing business and building a local economy, we’re truly a collaborative effort to turn ideas into new businesses.

We’re STEAM

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math – bringing STEAM out of the schools and into the community.  The Brickyard Collaborative teams with area schools – from K-12 and Vocational, to the many undergraduate and graduate programs in the area – to bring a synergy that’s truly exiting and inspiring.
