Makerspace Adelaide provides affordable access to tools, equipment, a community of like-minded makers. We offer membership, classes, workshop, speakers and special events.
Makerspace Adelaide brings together a vibrant mix of makers, hackers, creative groups and individuals to make, create, teach, learn and collaborate.
Makerspace Adelaide is ‘spiritual home’ for the Adelaide maker community providing a focal point for a diverse community of makers, making and innovation.
As the local economy changes, Adelaide needs to explore the possibilities of innovation and invention.
We are also keen to make sure traditional making and engineering skills are not lost from the wider community. Makerspace Adelaide will help retain these special skills in the community and provide a space and the environment for the passing on of skills to the next generation of makers.
Inventors, makers and entrepreneurs cannot go from an idea to ‘the next big thing’ in one simple step. They need to develop their ideas, prototype, refine and continue to develop their ideas and inventions. Makerspace Adelaide and the wisdom of the maker community is a vital step in the process of transforming ideas into reality.
