A Space for the Maker in All of Us!

Our Makerspace is an innovation and technology hub to turn any project into a reality. The space is located at our east Tool Library (1803 Danforth Ave). If you’re a beginner or advanced “Maker,” a membership to our space comes with amazing benefits:

Besides getting to borrow over 5,000 tools from our Tool Library, as a Makerspace member you’ll also get access to:

  • A fleet of 3D Printers (Makerbot Replicator 2 [PLA & ABS], RepRap printer, PrintrBot)
  • Open-Source Laser-Cutter (120 Watt LaserSaur, 2×4 foot bed)
  • Full Wood Shop (table saw, jointer, 15″ thickness planer, wood lathe, band saw, chop saw)
  • High-Five Memberships to the Toronto Tool Library and Sharing Depot are included with active Makerspace memberships so you can borrow from our entire inventory at no extra charge

Get 24/7 access to the space

Your 24/7 access key card means you can come in and work on your own time. Plus, only members can take advantage of FREE skills training with our in-house experts on all Makerspace equipment.

Price for Makerspace Membership

Makerspace Membership is $100/month plus a one-time registration fee of $200, for the set-up and continued running of the space. Members enjoy free training on all of our tools, discounted members’ rates on 3D Printing materials as well as a complementary High-Five Tool Library membership. As a member you can also book out the whole space for Maker-related events at no extra charge. We offer automated monthly billing and manual billing options. 

A Community of Makers

And most importantly, you’ll join a friendly, knowledgeable, close-knit community of innovative Makers from across many disciplines including carpentry and woodworking, ceramics, product design, environmental sustainability, technology and robotics, maintenance and repair, construction, 3D printing and more!  The Makerspace is a welcoming, positive place for artists, hobbyists and professionals from all backgrounds and experience levels.
