Studio Rentals


Creating is best done in community.

Open Works is the largest maker space in Maryland. In addition to our fabrication shops and classes, we offer 115 micro-studio spaces for your small business, arts practice, hobby, or nonprofit. Our flexible, affordable studios are designed with makers in mind, putting you at the heart of Baltimore’s largest community of creative professionals. With no long-term lease agreement, no credit check, and no insurance required, we make it easy for you to stretch your resources and grow your business.

About Our Micro-Studios

Open Works micro-studios are 7’x7′ (49 S.F.) modular plywood cubes with built-in workbenches. With an Open Works resident membership, you get one micro-studio. Your micro-studio includes:


  • A three-outlet power drop
  • Access to wi-fi
  • Storage locker at the end of the row
  • Individual address (mail is received through the front desk)
  • Access to a shared kitchenette & conference room
  • Access-controlled, camera-monitored 24-hour security

Membership access to our workshop facilities will be billed separately from studio rentals. Resident members are eligible for discounted tool access memberships. Learn more on our membership page. 

Micro-Studios have been decoupled from monthly memberships and start at $185/mo. See our Resident Membership Options if you want to add on workshop access.

*Additional micro-studios can be added for $150.00 per studio, per month. Resident Members may rent up to four micro-studios.
