Welcome to the Makerspace

The Makerspace exists to give all members of the Bryn Mawr College community the opportunities, resources and support they need to learn, experiment and develop as builders, designers and makers.

In order to observe campus social distancing guidelines, the Makerspace is open by appointment– currently our laser cutter, printer/plotter, sewing machines and general craft resources are available, and we anticipate 3D printing and limited woodshop access to be available before the end of the semester. We look forward to a full launch, with expanded hours and access in Fall of 2021.

Workshops and instruction will be delivered online and on-site as appropriate. Appointments for tool use and in-person consultations will be required to ensure that our space can be accessed in a safe and equitable way.

Our goals are to:

  • Support the educational and pedagogical work of students, faculty and staff on campus.
  • Provide resources and guidance to those interested in digital and traditional design and fabrication methods.
  • Highlight work related to critical making and material culture.
  • To provide an informal space where Bryn Mawr community members can learn and develop their own making practices.
