Welcome to the Makerspace Nanaimo Wiki,
our public repository of projects, rules, processes, and knowledge.

Who We Are

Main page feature pic.jpg

Makerspace Nanaimo is a membership based, non-profit, shared community workshop and laboratory.

We are an organized group of local artists, engineers, makers, and thinkers who work together to provide tools and learning resources to the public.

We use these resources to collaborate on individual and community projects in order to promote science, technology and art; while working and experimenting on innovative ideas to encourage learning within our community.

At Makerspace Nanaimo we believe that collaboration is a truly effective form of learning. To that end, our members and volunteers hold unique educational events and collaborate on cool projects.

We operate as a Do-Ocracy ([1]) and welcome anyone willing to volunteer their time to help improve the space.
