How Does It Work?

  • Connector.

    What

    Maker Station is a DIY ”Gym for Makers” where you can sign up as a member for different membership packages. Depending on your membership level and competency, you can book space or facilities to make almost anything.

  • Connector.

    When

    Bookings happen on a first come first serve basis. Members on the basic packages need to top up their services when they book additional facilities. Full members only need to book Space and tools. Maker Station does not supply consumables or materials for projects.

  • Connector.

    How

    Bookings and payment can only be done on-line. We limit the number of hours or days a member can book consecutively, to stop members hogging facilities. We have special rates for scholars etc.

Sharing of . . .

Learning

Maker Station is about learning new skills and trades and about teaching and sharing. We don’t offer accredited training, but MS and MS Members run workshops and Meet-ups from time to time. Like most real learning it happens on the ‘job’, so join and get MAKING.


Expertise

Maker Spaces are about community and sharing expertise. There is a lot of experience and expertise in our group. But we also connect, refer to and rely on our combined networks of experts outside in the community.



Tools

MS members can book Workshop facilities and Tools by the hour. We have a very wide range of Tools, covering multiple disciplines and trades, but if we don’t have the right tools for your job, we’ll do our best to help you find it in the network.

Space

MS Members can book Workstation and Studio space, as well as space to run meet-ups and workshops. If we don’t have the right space we’ll do our best to help you find it in the network.
