The Maker Station Inc, Cobb County's finest makerspace / hackerspace, is a collaborative, shared workspace (makerspace / hackerspace) northwest of Atlanta, GA. Here curious and like-minded folks come together to work on projects, discover new areas of interest, develop a new business idea, or simply grow their personal hobbies.

Welcome to The Maker Station!
-- Marietta's Makerspace --

The Maker Station Inc is home to a vibrant community of local makers in Cobb County and the greater Atlanta metro area. Here curious and like-minded folks come together to work on projects, discover new areas of interest, develop a new business idea, or simply grow their personal hobbies. The makerspace is a 100% volunteer driven 501c3 non-profit corporation. We are a valuable resource for Smyrna, Marietta, Kennesaw, Acworth, and surrounding metro areas. We started our journey in 2014 to build a makerspace close to home and welcome all interested community members to help grow and shape this makerspace / hackerspace into a thriving, collaborative environment.

Recurring monthly financial donations can also be made through our secure 3rd party payment processor, gumroad.com. The input form shows a $20+ suggested value, but you are free to type in any amount of $5 or greater.

Due to limited space at the Maker Station, materials and equipment donations must be approved by the Board of Directors. We ask that only equipment in good working order be donated. We are not a repair shop nor a recycling facility, and generally unable to salvage material "just in case it may be useful", etc.
