Our mission

A Makerspace For All.

Our mission is to make tools, technology, and the knowledge to use them accessible to all. We connect you to manufacturing equipment, space, education, and Baltimore’s largest community of maker professionals. With programs for ages eight and up, we can help you make just about anything!

Looking for a Class?

We offer a wide variety of classes for young people, adults, and seniors throughout the year. Our in-depth instruction is affordable and fits into your schedule with night and weekend offerings.

Looking for a Studio?

Resident members of Open Works have the option of adding one (or up to 4) micro-studios, available on flexible month-to-month terms. Check out our micro-studios for your small business or nonprofit and become part of a community of makers.

Interested in our Facilities?

Membership at Open Works gives you access to 34,000 S.F. of equipment, including 7 workshops and a computer lab. With loading dock access, free parking, and a central location, we make it easy for you to make!

Greenmount Coffee Lab

Located right in our lobby, Greenmount Coffee Lab is a project of Thread, a women & queer-owned coffee roasting company. They are a worker-cooperative and use a transparent model of trade, buying coffee directly from farmers. Join their coffee CSA, get your next catering order, or just come hang out!
