A makelab, makerspace or creative space is a location where people with common interests, usually in computers, technology, science or digital or electronic art can meet, socialise and/or collaborate. A makelab can be viewed as an open community lab incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where makers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.
