Staten Island MakerSpace was founded in 2013 by sculptors, DB Lampman and Scott Van Campen. DB works in mixed mediums, and has a background in dance, performance art, and arts administration. Scott is a metalworker and in addition to making sculpture, has operated his architectural metalworking business New York Custom Fabricators in the space at 450 Front Street for the last ten years.
We are a non-profit, community co-working space for makers, builders, tinkerers, hardware developers, hobbyists, artists, entrepreneurs, and anyone with a curious mind who wants to make something. We offer memberships to individuals and groups to use the tools and equipment in our 6000 sq ft facility. We also offer workshops and other resources to make your ideas come to life.
Our goal is to create a community of makers and foster an environment of entrepreneurial spirit and invention, by providing equipment and space to a membership that includes skilled craftspeople as well as weekend hobbyists.
Our members are artists, craftspeople, engineers, makers, creators, and thinkers that work together to collect tools and resources for our membership who might not otherwise afford, store, or use them individually. We use these resources to encourage our members to develop and start small businesses in our community and to encourage collaboration and experimentation across disciplines.
Informative and fun class with a small group and knowledgable teacher. A great artists and artisan space with multiple uses. Look forward to more classes at Makerspace. If you take SIR from the south of Staten Island, sit in back of the train and exit is right there, space is short 2 blocks away. Easy access.
This class was incredible and the instructors were attentive and extremely informative. They taught us plasma cutting and MIG welding (including the physics behind how the tools work) and each couple got to create their own design. My husband and I went for something simple since we were complete newbies and the instructors were beside us every step of the way. Other couples had a little bit more experience and they gave them more free range to use the tools. An amazing experience and would highly recommend!
Great class in a great space! Our teacher Allison was very knowledgeable. She covered all the basics and answered questions the students had about their individual projects. It was a good beginner class. I would highly recommend it.
Incredible woodworking workshop with Allison who gave me TLC as I progressed through the stages of learning to use the table saw, router, chop shaw and to assemble my "masterpiece." Am looking forward to the next phase.
I had a slight reservation signing up for this class thinking I might be out of place, but I couldn’t of been more wrong. Scott is a great instructor, very personable and made all students feel comfortable and welcome. Great introduction and background to welding with a great phased in approach to learning to do it. There is plenty of time for each student to physically weld, not just discuss the how to’s. Can’t wait to take other classes as this was quite enjoyable.
Scott and Emily were patient and awesome teachers, even despite my initial anxieties about burning my hands off, suffering inadvertent retinal damage, etc. Nothing to worry about here because they walk you through every step of the process beforehand and while you're working. They focused on technique, which I wasn't expecting in a course for first time welders, and we were encouraged to get creative with our projects. I'll definitely be back again for another class!
Small class size. Lots of practice! Jimmy is a great instructor, He gives unvarnished advice and is very supportive. I look forward to him giving an advanced stick welding class.
Loved this class! We had a great time learning to use the plasma cutting machine with Scott. Good instructor and nice place.
Amazing class with the nicest teacher. A great new and exciting experience. We wanted something different for Valentine's Day, and this was one of the best yet. Very helpful instructor and funny.
Very cool class. Great atmosphere.
