Fablab

Our Fablab is a shared workshop with digital fabrication machines: 3d printers, laser cutter, CNC milling machine and more.

It is accessible through membership, during artists residencies, or through a partnership (for companies). While we focus mainly on artistic practices, everyone is welcome to come and use our machines to create in an inspiring environment and be part of an active community.
