... we foster a community of makers: tinkerers, technologists, artists, hobbyists, craftsmen, educators, innovators, and entrepreneurs. What all of these diverse and unique minds have in common is a passion for making beautiful and useful things in the company of other creative people. We share our knowledge, experience, abilities, talents, and tools. When our founders came together in 2012 to create the Valley's first Makerspace, they established the first tenet, which has never wavered since: if someone can help another member learn or grow, that’s job one. This collaborative ethos is at the heart of everything we do because together we’re smarter than any lone individual. What began as a few maker enthusiasts hoping to share resources has become an engine of change in downtown Fresno and beyond.
Fresno Ideaworks is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, public benefit organization. Our mission is to promote and encourage technical, scientific, and artistic skills through individual projects, social collaboration, and education.
Our vision is to become the driving force of inspiration in our community by providing a Maker Space to the Central Valley. We are dedicated to bringing innovation by providing our community with the resources to develop new skills and practice creative problem solving.
