Makerspaces & Workshops

Do you have a creative idea or would you like to implement an exciting project, but don't have the right tools? There are a number of makerspaces and workshops on Campus Vaihingen (and also on Campus Stadtmitte) where you can give free rein to your creativity.

What is a makerspace?

A makerspace is a space that is open to everyone to realize creative ideas and projects. A variety of devices such as 3D printers, laser cutters, embroidery machines, cutting plotters, programmable looms, soldering stations, drawing displays, iPads and much more are made available for use free of charge on site to produce physical workpieces. They are often also venues for events, workshops and courses. The focus of the makerspaces is not on the equipment, but on the individual projects of the makers.

What is a workshop?

A workshop is often more specific to certain types of projects or crafts and can be, for example, a wood workshop, a metal workshop or an electronics workshop. Workshops usually have restricted access and can only be used by a specific group of people or by prior arrangement. Workshops are generally more functional, as the focus here is on practical work and the production of workpieces.
