About Maker Community

We are a Makerspace in Brunswick, Melbourne. We are operated by the community for the community. We are a not-for-profit organization, so you can be sure that all membership fees go towards the running and improvement of the space.

We’ve got a fully equipped woodworking space, heaps of 3D Printers, a hefty CNC router, soldering stations, electronics, RC gear and much more.

Just come for a visit to check out the place, bring a project (or two) to work on or jump right in on one of the many exciting community projects taking place.

 

Our members are into interests such as woodworking, digital fabrication, cosplay, sewing, model making, RC planes, cars and drones, micro-controllers, robotics, coding, plastic recycling, prototyping and pretty much every other facet of ‘Making’ in its broadest sense. You are sure to find like minded and kindred spirits at Maker Community Inc.
