"We're a non-profit makerspace in Downtown Ventura. We provide access to A LOT of tools and shared knowledge to help people of all ages and skills create whatever they can imagine. Become a maker at MAKE Ventura!"

What we do...

We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide access to tools and training so you can make whatever you can imagine. Our goal is to create a community of makers, builders, artist, inventors, and hackers who combine their knowledge and ideas with the tools available to make cool stuff. We strive maintain a DIY philosophy and use and contribute as much to open-source technology and knowledge-base as we can.

MAKE Ventura is focused on creating opportunities for Members. Create something you'd like to sell, and we'll help you put it online and in the MAKE Ventura Store. Once you've learned a technique or would like to share a skill, we'll help you put together a class and have it placed on our Events Calendar, and you can become a paid instructor.
