Open Design & Making

Join us to explore the possibilities of open design & digital fabrication.

We are all managing major change and upheaval in what is becoming ‘Covid-normal’ Therefore this programme is on hold for the foreseeable future. We are also trying not to produce unnecessary noise, and have put a hold on our quarterly newsletter, facebook and instagram posts.

Fab Lab Wgtn is where DIYers, makers, coders, designers and artists take their creative skills to the next level. You’ll be in good company. We are an open-source community engaged in learning through making.

Our Open Design & Making Programme, which we host through Massey’s PaCE programme, consists of these series at present:
