What is a Makerspace?

A makerspace is an open place with tools and supplies where anyone can go to work on a creative project of his or her own choosing. Projects can include endeavors in the fields of art, music, technology, small business, authorship, science to name a few. At the Idea Factory, we have everything you need in one creative space to explore 3D printing, to work with many types of digital media, to hold collaborative meetings, to learn from skilled professionals and to get going on your own projects! Have an idea? Bring it to life at the PCCLD Idea Factory!
