Open Thursday Fablab Amsterdam

28-6-18 16:00 - 28-6-18 20:00
Fablab Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, 1012 CR Amsterdam

There will be no open Thursday and evening programme in the months of July and August. We will resume our Thursday programme on 6 September!

Are you curious what our Fablab of Wetlab can mean for you? Come and visit the mother of maker spaces! Every Thursday*, between 4 – 8 pm, Fablab Amsterdam is open (not suitable for group visits).

Ten years ago, Waag opened the doors to Fablab Amsterdam: a place where you can make pretty much anything. Want to build your own sensors, do some digital tinkering, 3D-print an array of beautiful products or build electronic circuits? Fablab Amsterdam is a place for creativity, craftsmanship and digital experiments. The Wetlab is also open, a laboratory for open-source and creative biotechnology.

During the open Thursdays we explain how the machines work, what you can make with them and what the philosophy is behind the maker movement and digital fabrication. At Fablab Amsterdam we are always looking for critical makers with interesting projects. We are happy to answer any questions or help you find your way in the Amsterdam maker scene. 

Besides our open day, there are many other activities you can join. Examples are: the annual Fab Academy (a 20-week course in digital fabrication), the TextileLab (a lab for fashion, textile and material designers), and the BioHack Academy (to build your own biolab).

Entrance to the Fablab en Wetlab on Open Thursday is free. On Thursday evenings we host a variety of workshops, lectures and meetups. Have a look at our calendar for the event programming and buy your ticket via Eventbrite.

*) Except national holidays and seasonal holiday periods. 

This open day is part of the project Doing It Together Science. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 709443.
