MakerLabs A Makerspace In Strathcona Where Ideas Come To Life

5 Jun

MakerLabsToday we are featuring the last of four participants in this year’s Vancouver Mini Maker Faire. MakerLabs is “a makerspace that provides you with the tools, space, and skills to bring ideas to life.” They are located at 780 East Cordova in Strathcona in a 26,000 square foot space. Having just moved into this space in April, they are just now opening their doors to the public.  The space allows individuals access to digital fabrication tools (laser cutters, 3D printers/scanners, CNC routers), a woodshop, textiles lab, photo studio, and a whole lot more.  To ensure that people know how to use the tools, they also provide a basic use and safety orientation on all the different tool families. MakerLabs will be at Vancouver Mini Maker Faire this weekend at the PNE Forum demonstrating some of the projects that have been made over the past year. As mentioned in a previous post, this is the space Basic Design uses to make amazing products from items that would normally end up in the landfill. So be sure to visit them at the Mini Make Faire and get creative. Who knows what you could make?
