About Us

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.

Our Goals

  • 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.
