Hatch Makerspace is located at 20 Summer Street in Watertown, MA.

An extension of the Watertown Free Public Library, we are a free public workshop with space, equipment, and materials available for your use.


YardArt is a citywide exhibit of whimsy and ingenuity on our front yards, open to anyone living or working in Watertown.

Latecomer? No problem! There is still time to register to get a yard sign and appear on the YardArt 2022 map. You don’t have to be an artist, and any weather resistant materials are fair game.

Stop by Hatch to get advice on your project and pick up a YardArt Kit of useful starter tools.
You can also get project advice from other  YardArtists on the YardArt Facebook Help Group.
