Workshop 88 is a hackerspace (also known as a makerspace) located in Chicago’s western suburbs. Focused on science, technology, mechanics, culture and the digital arts we offer a space where people with diverse backgrounds can socialize, collaborate, learn and make. Through shared resources, knowledge and ideas we strive to create a space that promotes community and learning.
