Our Mission

We serve the community by unlocking the creative and productive potential of the individual.  We believe that given the right environment, education and tools, anything is possible.

Our Vision

We believe that a sustainable maker community must be built from the ground up by people like you.  Our vision includes 5 locations, 4 satellite locations ~5,000 to 10,000 sf each around loop 820, north, south, east and west and one larger location central to downtown ~15,000 to 30,000 sf.  Once the 4 satellite locations are self sustaining we will look for our final location in the heart of Fort Worth.  Obviously this will take time, the speed at which we bring this vision to fruition depends entirely on the support we receive from our local maker community.  If you share this vision please consider becoming a member.

Took the welding class with 2 friends of mine. Had a fun time, learned a lot, and left with a pretty nice looking grill I made myself! The instructor Aaron... was really knowledgeable (20+ years) and is really good at teaching this stuff. Class took about 6 hours but it flies by as you're essentially active the whole time. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone looking to learn something new and have some fun doing it.read more

Great place, good people, cool toys! Excellent, relatively quiet place to work on projects, with people ready to help close by.

I went to the Tarrant County Makerspace to learn to weld, and they taught me in a very personal and effective manner. Hands on from the first few minutes... (after getting my PPE on, which they supply), I was taught MIG welding, then got to do a lot of it to make a stove (from a well-done kit).I was some money and time very well spent, now I have a new skill and a terrific hobby! Makerspace will let you use their welder if you join as a member, so there's not as big a barrier to doin it after the class as you might think.Highly Recommended!read more

The welding class was very informative and the instructor very knowledgeable. At the end of the class I felt more comfortable welding on my own. I highly... recommend the class to anyone wanting to get into welding and starting with the basics and forming good safety habits.read more

I had an excellent experience with Tarrant County Maker Space. I have had a membership for some time and only recently had the opportunity to go and work on a... project. It has been a long time since I've used many of the tools that were needed for my project, but Aaron was very helpful in guiding me through the process and providing me with the necessary tools. The atmosphere was very welcoming despite my inexperience, and I left feeling comfortable and confident in my abilities. Overall, I highly recommend the Tarrant County Makerspace to anyone interested in woodworking, or really most any other craft as they have lots of tools and equipment, as they incredibly approachable and very helpful.read more
