The Fabrication Lab experienced considerable damage in the flood event that we had early this year and remains closed while the building is assessed and repaired.

In the meantime we have opened the Fabrication Lab Pop Up in the Innovation Lab on Level 1 of The Edge.

The Pop Up is currently open; Thursdays from 5 - 8 pm for Hack the Evening and Saturdays from 12 - 6 pm for Saturday Open Lab.

To help you get creative, a selection of resources are available for use during these sessions. Please note, equipment bookings are required for Saturday Open Lab.

To find out the latest about our Fabrication Lab Pop Up keep an eye on the Whats On pages on our website and sign up for The Edge enews here to stay up to date with the latest changes.

Theres also a Pop Up FAQ with answers to the most commonly asked questions.
