Asmbly Makerspace

Our mission is to enrich Austin’s creative maker community by providing a top notch creative space with tools and educational opportunities in a multidisciplinary, inviting, and member-focused setting. As an educational nonprofit, we will continue to expand class offerings to both our members and the community at large. Our classes already run the gamut from introductory woodworking to advanced welding, laser cutting, 3D printing and more.

We continually aspire to expand the disciplines offered at Asmbly, but want to be sure we do it right. We would love to offer jewelry making and ceramics in the near future and expanding into a larger space will likely be the appropriate time for these additions. Until then, we will be working to improve our current offerings.

Hiring a full-time staff to help manage our growing operations is one of our goals. We’re proud to have a few part-time staff providing essential support to our Education and Membership Teams. However, by and large, Asmbly runs on the efforts of dedicated volunteers. Each member plays a part in helping the space to flourish, from keeping the workshop and bathrooms clean, to planning for the future and managing our finances.
