We make

Makers have an active and critical attitude towards their environment and technology. Through digital fabrication, knowledge sharing and open-source hardware, we are able to make (almost) everything. And if we can make everything, the question is no longer what we make, but how we make it.

 

With Make we discover technologies, hardware, production processes, materials and partnerships that must be accessible to the public. In our FabLab, TextileLab and Wetlab, there is room for artistic and experimental research and participation in the creative process. By hacking (living) material, learning by making yourself and collaboration with art and science, we involve citizens, artists and designers in innovation in the manufacturing and design industry. We spread the makers' mentality through workshops, academy programs and various local and international projects.
