What we're about

We're a MakerLab in the south suburbs with a mission to introduce as many people as we can to the joys of making physical objects. Whether you know blacksmithing or 3D printing, make paper airplanes or build drones, are a professional designer or a garage tinkerer, you'll find tools and a like-minded community of people who love to create with their hands.

Bring your skills or just your curiosity. All skill levels are welcome. Learn from our instructors and from each other. Take a class, teach a class, or come in for open hours to do your own making. Tinker, make something to enjoy, or make something to create a business.
