Tools & Departments

Everyone has a vision of the things that they would like to make, but unfortunately, not everyone has access to the necessary tools to put shape to those ideas. This is where the Claremont MakerSpace comes in. We offer membership-based access to traditional and high-tech tools for a range of technical, artisanal and industrial fields as well as for the hobbyist. We also offer classes, access to mentors and ongoing skill development in order to help you learn how to turn your ideas into reality.

See the Tool List below to get an idea of what you’ll be able to access with a Claremont MakerSpace membership. Note: this is a working list, and is subject to change as our tool-set evolves.
