This open workshop is the ideal place for students and employees of AUAS to give your ideas concrete shape using materials such as wood, plastic, metal and different textiles. You can also create intensely coloured prints with the RISO printer, or create full-colour prints on nearly any material with the UV printer. Otherwise, the digital Makers Lab also has 3D printers, laser cutters, a foam cutter and a sticker cutter. The Makers Lab's analogue tools include a drill press, band saw, sander and many hand tools.

Working method

The Makers Lab is not a place to have things made but where to make them yourself. The Makers Lab is a DIY (do it yourself) making space. There are always instructors present who can teach you how to work safely with the tools and equipment. Then it's all up to you to get to work independently. Using the Makers Lab is free of charge. Bring along your own materials or get some advice about various options and sales outlets. However, for some equipment, you will not be able to purchase the material yourself, so the Makers Lab supplies these. See ‘Materials and costs’ for each piece of equipment.
