Our vision is to build a network of creative spaces in the historic town of Messejana, always available to our members, residents, and other hub members. A cohesive network of spaces that extends and enhances one another, providing distinctive opportunities for collaboration and creative exploration.


The FabLab is organized into three primary areas: the workshop, studio, and an educational maker space.

The workshop is fully equipped with heavy-duty prototyping machinery such as CNC routers and laser cutters, a comprehensive set of tools and power tools, and Precious Plastic machines.
