Fab Lab Wellington

Fab Lab Wgtn is an invention playground, an incubator of design ideas, a creative ecosystem. Long Description Fab Lab Wgtn is a digital fabrication laboratory equipped with computer-controlled tools able to make almost anything.

Think of Fab Lab as an invention playground, an incubator of design ideas, a maker of possibilities, a creative ecosystem, and a place that gives anyone and everyone the technology to power their ideas.

Part of a growing global network of Fab Labs affiliated to MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Fab Lab Wgtn is Australasia’s first and sits within the School of Design at Massey University Wellington. General Information Fab labs provide widespread access to modern means for invention. They began as an outreach project from MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA). CBA assembled millions of dollars in machines for research in digital fabrication, ultimately aiming at developing programmable molecular assemblers that will be able to make almost anything. Fab labs fall between these extremes, comprising roughly fifty thousand dollars in equipment and materials that can be used today to do what will be possible with tomorrow’s personal fabricators.

Creative L@b

Auckland Council in partnership with the Puketapapa Local Board, have launched the Puketapapa Creative Lab as the first digital learning space co designed in collaboration with the community.

In order to design a digital space that provides value and meaning to the community, an Empowered Communities Approach (ECA) model is being rolled out. The Creative Lab hopes to function and respond to the communities needs and aspirations. The Creative Lab will be operated by both staff and a local collective which have the skills and expertise to run digital projects. The Creative Lab will allow users to be connected, learn, and experiment with the digital resources offered in the space. The space features: - Video Editing software - Music Recording Studio Equipment - 3D Printer - Vinyl Cutter - Green Screen + Photography Equipment - All-In-One touch screen computers - Mobile Laptops - Furnishings assembled by students at Wesley Intermediate and various community groups.

The Creative Lab aims to amplify community-led efforts that nurture innovative learning, foster cultural connections, and cultivate employment opportunities. This funky and innovative space is co-designed by the Puketapapa Local Board, Auckland Council, the Roskill community, and many other local partners.

This space is available for groups to use for digital learning. For more information please contact: Nyrene Crowley -
