Fabriken is Sweden's first Makerspace, started as an experiment with a strong pull from Malmö University. In August 2013 we opened again after a period of renovation and with several new machines. Then we had also embarked on a unique partnership with the company Arduino Verkstad that helped us to continue to be first with the latest.
Part of my work with the project was to lead the renovation and the changes made in the methodology of Fabriken. Since then we have worked as a membership based workshop where we teach our members how to use machines such as laser-cutter, 3D printer and CNC-Miller. We also create workshops where we mixed crafts and technology both for children and adults.
As a project manager for Fabriken I get even to work with a fantastic team of people that are part of the development of Fabriken to become not Swedens first Makerspace, but the best!
