Fablab Amsterdam is open to the public every Thursday afternoon (12:00-17:00).
Please note that due to corona crisis Fablab has stopped doing open days since the beginning of March 2020. As the Fablab is currently in use by Fab Academy we will not have open days until further notice. Please keep an eye on us as we'll announce when the Fablab is re-opening to the public again.
During the open Thursdays we explain how the machines work, what you can make with them and what the philosophy is behind the maker movement and digital fabrication. At Fablab Amsterdam we are always looking for critical makers with interesting projects. We are happy to answer any questions or help you find your way in the Amsterdam maker scene, as there is a growing number of so-called 'Maakplaatsen' at the public libraries (OBA) in the city where you can make things with digital fabrication.
Entrance to the Fablab on Thursday is free (reservations are not necessary). The open day is held very week, except national holidays and the annual holiday periods (July/August and Christmas). Please bear in mind that the size of our Fablab does not make it suitable for group visits.
Fablab Amsterdam is situated on the first floor of the Waag monument in Amsterdam.
