What is a MakerSpace?

A MakerSpace is a room or a studio where people get together to create things in the company of other makers. They are creative, social spaces, coordinated by volunteers, which provide opportunities for people to share, learn and connect.

Makers share skills, ideas, inspiration, friendship and the joy of making.

MakerSpaces are flexible and affordable. Join a MakerSpace for a low annual membership fee and come when it suits you, as often as you like, during the scheduled MakerSpace time. You can even enrol online!

MakerSpaces are more affordable because they are coordinated by volunteers and the operating costs are covered by a larger membership base. For some Makerspaces with limited room space this means that you are not guaranteed a spot in every session.

Members have the opportunity to exhibit in our end of year diversARTy exhibition at Eltham Library Gallery to celebrate their achievements with friends and family. Members may also be offered the opportunity to participate in Living & Learning Nillumbik Makers Markets.
