Dunedin Makerspace

Dunedin Makerspace is a shared workshop where everyone is invited to work and create. We work in many different disciplines, learning new skills from those alongside us and sometimes doing projects we could not do ourselves. We want to see electronics, craft, art, programming, engineering, cooking and all other types of creative enterprise happening at our workshop. The Dunedin MakerSpace crowd are a friendly bunch and someone will usually be happy to give you a hand.

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

Find out when each type of equipment is available at your library:

The Foundation

A Makerspace, sometimes called Hackerspace, is both a physical place and a community. What binds the community together is the joy of making things. There is no limit on what “things” can mean in this context, many makerspaces have a bias towards electronics or physical computing projects but it can, and should, include working with wood, fabric, food, glass, metal, beer or projects that include all of those… anything that can be made, discussed, refined and tinkered with.
