Whau makerspace

Cost: Free (though there may be a small charge for 3D printing filament)

A makerspace is a place where people can come together to innovate and create using information, resources and tools provided.

You can play, tinker, explore, and meet others with similar interests.

The Whau Makerspace is a collaboration between New Lynn, Avondale and Blockhouse Bay libraries. We have a bunch of cool equipment which we swap around the libraries at least once a month (more frequently during school holidays).

At any given time each of the libraries will have one of the following sets of equipment:

  • 5 x laptops for game design, music making and 3D design
  • 1 x 3D printer and laptop for printing 3D designs
  • 10 x robotic Cubelet kits for making robots
