WHAT MAKES A GREAT
MAKERSPACE RESIDENT?

Book a Tutored Session to discuss your needs. Our Technical staff will invite you to apply to be a Resident if your project is suitable for the MakerSpace facilities and if you demonstrate:

Independence:
the ability to work safely with minimal supervision from staff.

A great attitude:

friendly, approachable, motivated and committed.

Engagement:
with the broader MakerSpace community.

Good workshop etiquette:
especially cleaning as you go.

Respect:
for MakerSpace equipment, staff, facilities and other workshop users.

A commitment to your practice: are you focused on working towards specific goals and outcomes, improving skills, starting a business or developing in some way.

Design:
With limited spaces available, MakerSpace prioritises people working in design (including craft, fabrication and engineering).

Diversity:
We love our community: we have diverse backgrounds, types of work, skill levels, ages, genders, stories. You are welcome.

A FEW NOTES:

  • Tutored Sessions are available to anyone.
  • In order to become a Resident you must first attend a Tutored Session so our Techs can asses your suitability for the program. Application is by invitation. Residents join us for a minimum of 4 months. If you want one month only, it’s $350.
  • Most equipment inductions are covered in the Tutored Sessions. Some equipment takes a little longer to master, and subsequently requires booking a paid class (for example welding) if you are not already proficient. Also note: Some equipment incurs additional usage fees, for example welding, ceramics firing and laser-cutting to cover operating costs.
  • Prices are subject to change 🙂
