What is Makerspace Adelaide?

Makerspace Adelaide is a community fabrication workshop providing affordable access to a variety of tools and equipment - from laser cutters and sewing machines to 3D printers and traditional hand tools. Along with access to tools there are staff and volunteers to help members learn how to safely use the tools and equipment.
What we do

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.

Why we do it

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.

A space of opportunity and possibilities

Inventors, makers, and entrepreneurs cannot go from an idea to 'the next big thing' in one simple step. They need to 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.

The diversity of users is the biggest strength of any Makerspace, they bring people from all walks of life, industries and backgrounds.
