Let our decades of makerspace experience work for you.
Creating the makerspace
The consultants of FabLab Studio have the knowledge and the expertise you want from running a highly successful makerspace and fablab. For seven years, Dani, Snow, and Steve have been running one of the most successful private makerspaces in the country, FabLab Tacoma.
They are experts in every aspect of running a makerspace, from setting up the space to designing the curriculum to picking the right machines from the right companies. They’ve gone through the pain of starting a business from scratch, and now are offering their decades of knowledge to you.
The process for working with us is simple.
First, we take a free, 15-minute tour of Fablab Tacoma so you can see the equipment we have and ask some basic questions. If we decide to work together from there, we can then set up a meeting with all of your stakeholders to discuss your goals and ideas. Once we know what you want to do with your space, then we can talk about equipment purchases, space management, staff organization, discuss managing your programming, train you on how to teach classe, give you a cirriculum, and more.
Meeting with our experts means you don’t have to go it alone, or search endlessly on the web for articles that may not tell you what you want to know.
Save yourself the time and heartache as you create your new makerspace. Hire our senior makerspace consultants and make your new venture run as smoothly as possible.
Our team is here to help you create a great makerspace today. Don’t spend time and money trying to figure out what we already know. Contact our consultants today!
