Solid State Depot, Boulder’s Makerspace: a physical place where like-minded people get together and collaborate on creative projects. We were founded in July 2010 and moved into our first space a few months later in November. Sometimes referred to as a Hackerspace, Makerspace, Maker shop, or shared workspace, the SSD Boulder Makerspace is a location which functions as both a workshop and a place to hold our meetings. We explore art and technology, and support each other in developing creative ideas/plans/toys/inventions/madness!
We have a weekly open house on Tuesday nights at 7:30 pm, going on until 10 or 11 pm. Take a look at some photos from our meetings on our blog and social media.
Our space is located at 1965 33rd Street, Unit B, in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
Our Boulder Makerspace is located near 33rd and Walnut in Boulder. From the intersection of 33rd and Walnut, travel north on 33rd, take 2nd left (the last left before the road itself turns left) into a U-shaped parking lot, you should see a sign for Anco Engineering to your right. We are in the far-right corner of the U shaped lot, the opposite corner from the Brewer's Association. If you know where The Spot Climbing Gym is located, their back door is next to our front door!
Everyone is invited! Designers, photographers, programmers, engineers, painters, sculptors, musicians… Come to the Boulder Hackerspace and get involved in the hackerspace movement!
