Imagine. Create. Inspire.

The Schantz MakerSpace was created for people who share the joy of making things, have a desire to learn or improve their skills, and wish to see the knowledge of craftsmanship survive into the future.


The Schantz MakerSpace

A Place To Imagine, Invent, Tinker & Create - Where Learning Means Not Being Sorry About The Mess.

Employees at Schantz Organ Company believe sound craftsmanship is more than just a company goal. It is a passion and a desire to create what few people can even imagine, in an environment that has encouraged this approach for over 145 years.

To keep that passion for skill and craftsmanship alive, the Schantz factory opened its doors to creative, like-minded people who now help us to encourage and teach the makers of tomorrow. Our community is filled with enthusiastic makers who want to bring their creative ideas to life, but lack the necessary tools or experience. We strive to provide educational opportunities and experiences for people who like to build, invent, tinker, and/or learn new skills.

OHS Maker Club Takes Flight with Drone Workshop

Time to fly!Yesterday we joined students from the OHS Maker Club for some flight training with drones. Our Schantz MakerSpace volunteers walked students through a "How NOT to Crash" course and discussed the ways drones are helping to solve problems in today's world. Then students got to test their skills on our obstacle courses and joined in a team effort to solve a "Toxic Waste Mission". Careers involving this skill set are growing in number each year. The best way to grow your skills is to get out and play! Looking forward to coming back next week for a session on programming the drones for autonomous flight. Special Thanks to Orrville High School and Dr. Tim Vierheller for helping to make this happen!
