General information about MakerSpace Leiden

MakerSpace Leiden is an open workshop where people from diverse backgrounds come together to share tools, instruments, and knowledge to make things.

Since our opening in 2013, we have become one of the largest and best-equiped makerspaces in the Netherlands. We have achieved this through a culture of great freedom and responsibility for all participants.

Our group of over 100 people ranges from 18 years old to very experienced. There is freedom to work out your own ideas, but also unity to help each other and maintain our workshop together. We have steadily grown into a diverse group with one common factor: a creative spirit and the urge to realize ideas.
