About the Makerspace

The Makerspace is a community workshop membership program operated by the Foundry. Membership gives you access to our shared workshop spaces and talented group of supervisors to learn from. These include our woodshop, techlab, metal shop and textile lab. In the future we aim to expand and add other workshops.

If you are committed to starting or running a business, you may want to consider applying for a space in our small business incubator as a Foundry Resident. Learn more about Foundry Residency.
