Thank you SO MUCH to Made in Baltimore members for voting us Best Maker Resource 2019!

We have JUST TWO studios left for rent! Sign up for a community orientation today to see what’s available.


Youth Maker Shop Winter Session

New class alert! Table Top Role Play Game! Sign your child(ren) up to make their own RPG characters using laser-cut cards and 3D printing. 6 week session kicks off Thursday, Feb. 13.

Register at (410) 862-0424 or email Youth and Family Programs Coordinator Rikiesha Metzger at rikiesha@openworksbmore.com.


Year of the Rat

We are now officially in the Year of the Rat! It feels like Baltimore’s year, no? The Rat is first on the order of zodiac animals and is associated with wealth and abundance. Come grab a laser-cut rat kit at our merch table in the lobby as a totem for 2020. #madeatopenworks

Traffic-Calming Charette This Wednesday!

Help us make Greenmount West a safer place to walk, bike, and play! We have partnered with the Greenmount West Community Association, BYKE, and the MICA School of Social Design to make some local traffic interventions to calm down zooming cars on Greenmount, Guilford, and Oliver. Join us for a community input meeting this Wednesday,  Feb. 5 at 6 PM. 


Special Election TOMORROW

Do you live in the 7th Congressional District? Not sure? Well, check the district map here first to find out, then head over to Ballotopedia for a candidate round up, and then go out and vote tomorrow! Not sure where to vote? Here is a list of polling places.


Class Highlight

Always wanted to learn how to do complex 3D modeling? Member Aaron Granofsky makes cosplay replicas like this Legend of Zelda scale model shield — all with computer modeling! Check out Rhino 3D this Thursday from 6-9 PM to get started with some of our most popular software. 


Coffee Corner

When it doesn’t smell like delicious coffee or lovely yellow pine sawdust in our lobby, it smells like bacon! Greenmount Coffee Lab is slinging fresh-made BLTs with local Liberty Delight Farms free-pastured pork 6 days a week. Get some!
