Pikes Peak Makerspace (PPM) is dedicated to supporting our maker community in their creative process by providing shared space, shared tools, materials and a knowledge base to turn their ideas into reality.

We provide a small, locked shed for the temporary storage of raw materials, not for storing unfinished projects. (Our shed has lights, but no heat.)

Safety First

Members must know the following information:

Covid-19 notice

In case of emergency, call 911
