Makerspace Nanaimo is an open community lab: a blend of workshop, studio space, social hub and educational facility where members can share tools, resources and knowledge to build just about anything.


What goes on at a Makerspace?

  • On any given day you might have people woodworking, someone welding, a couple of programmers debugging code, someone at the bench soldering, and others socializing or just watching videos on the projector screen.
  • There are also regular meetings to address club logistics and make decisions that affect our members and the space. All members can, and are encouraged to, participate in this process.
  • Occasionally, members put on courses or clinics on topics they have some ability in.

Who can join?

  • Everyone! Artists, engineers, computer programmers, electronics experts… all are welcome. Makerspace Nanaimo is a place to share knowledge across disciplines; come share your skills and learn some new ones!
