A Community of Makers


Make-It-Here is an integral part of the Chicagoland MakerSpace community.

“What Ya Workin’ On?” Monthly Meetings

Join us for our, open to the public, “What Ya Workin’ On?” meetings, as Makers present their creations and projects in process!

Pretty much anything someone is “Making" is welcome at “What Ya Workin’ On?” meetings.  We have people interested in a wide variety of topics and endeavors.  Woodworking, 3D-printing, laser engraving, metal working, welding, CNC milling, artistic creations, anything built or created.

Having a difficulties with a project?  The “What Ya Workin’ On?” meeting is a great place to ask for help, and this brain trust will amaze you with solutions to problems you may not have even considered.

This is an open group.  All are Welcome - especially younger makers are encouraged to bring in a project to show off.

We meet on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7 pm.


Free Maker-Coworking Fridays


On the 4th Friday of the Month, come in and make, build, co-work for free. If you have already taken a class or two, you can use those tools and machines to work on during this day. If you'd like to use a machine you haven't taken a class on, you will have to take a class prior to the Friday event (no classes are taught on the 4th Friday of the month). 

This event repeats every 4th Friday of the month (except November) and is 10 am - 6 pm.

One of our makers talks about one of his Make-It-Here projects.
