Makerspace FAQ’s

What is a makerspace?

A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.

Who would use a makerspace?

Makerspaces can be used by anyone but typically creative business’s, students, entrepreneurs and school children for making, collaborating, learning and sharing.

What makes a space a makerspace?

If a makerspace sounds to you like a co-working space or a tech incubator, they’re similar, but not quite the same. A makerspace is about more than just being in the same space with other creators. It’s about having access to the specialised tools and talent required to build the thing you want to create — and then taking advantage of those tools and talent to actually do it.

How are Makerspaces being used for start-ups?

Should you need a 3D printer to build a prototype? You’re likely to find one at a local makerspace.


Looking for an engineer to draw up plans for your new idea? There’s probably one right down the hall from you there.


Just want to collaborate with others who are eager to get together and make something? Look for your people in a makerspace.

If you want to create something, but you don’t have what you need to do it all on your own — whether it’s expensive equipment or people power — chances are you can do it in a makerspace.
