Splat*Space is a makerspace/hackerspace in Durham, NC. We are located in the Triangle region of North Carolina (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill). We opened in September 2010, incorporated as the Durham Makerspace and have ~55 members currently in a 1700 sq ft location in Downtown Durham.

About Splat*Space[edit]

Splat*Space is a multidisciplinary workshop and makerspace/hackerspace in Downtown Durham. We are a 501(C)3, member-driven, member-funded organization. We are a community of crafters, engineers, mad scientists, artists, programmers, hackers, makers, tinkerers, teachers, and students of all kinds: our ultimate goal is to reach out to each other and the surrounding community to share our passion for art, technology, and innovation. Through sharing this passion, we will ultimately build a community that uniquely contributes to the technical and artistic vibrancy of Durham, and the Triangle as a whole.

We have a physical location in Downtown Durham where members can access physical space, basic tools/parts, and a community of passionate people. We hold weekly open meetings in addition to classes, events, and get-togethers to celebrate and share our strengths, learn from each other, and collaborate on projects of interest to members. We participate in activities in the community and support STEAM activities at local schools, libraries and museums.

We offer all kinds of classes and workshops within our space, ranging from crochet to basic circuitry. Don’t be intimidated! We all have to start somewhere, and we can all learn something from each other. We welcome for makers of all kinds, with diverse backgrounds and interests. There are no requirements for background knowledge. You do not need to be an expert in any given area of computing, science, mathematics, or art. In order for such an environment to thrive, we do require, at minimum, honesty, respect, and an open-mind. That’s it!
