Workshop 88 is a hackerspace (also known as a makerspace) located in Chicago’s western suburbs. Focused on science, technology, mechanics, culture and the digital arts we offer a space where people with diverse backgrounds can socialize, collaborate, learn and make. Through shared resources, knowledge and ideas we strive to create a space that promotes community and learning.

For members the space is available 24/7. This is a great resource when you lack your own space or equipment for projects.

We have public meetings on Thursdays from 6:30pm til 10:30pm that are open to the general public. The meetings are informal and are not structured so it is a great time to come check out the space and get a tour. We don’t even charge for the sales pitch you get.

Workshop 88 is located at 41°52’37.0″N 88°03’58.2″W: 481 N Main St. Rear Building Unit B, in downtown Glen Ellyn, IL. Despite the Main St address, access is ONLY through the Schock Square parking lot on Pennsylvania.
