About Spark Makerspace
Spark Makerspace is a community workshop and learning center founded to support makers with the space, equipment, education, and community to create a spark in their creativity. Spark Makerspace was founded in 2015 by a group of artists, techies, and entrepreneurs, all of them makers, looking to support creativity by providing urban dwellers and the region with resources they did not have at home. To accommodate growth and embrace the momentum, Spark and friends recently bought and reopened at a historic 9,400 square foot commercial building on Union Street in New London.
