We provide expert training on how to use the equipment and we always have staff on hand for support, advice and brainstorming ideas. 

What we do

The UOW Makerspace also runs general maker sessions for those wanting to come in and use the equipment or space, much like a gym. We have friendly staff on hand to teach you how to operate the machines and make sure you are comfortable getting started.
