Maker Space

Students working on a project

The Maker Space at The 8 is a high- and low-tech environment that features 3-D printers, a laser cutter, art and design tools such as advanced sewing machines and small tools.

The Maker Space provides students, staff, and faculty from the UW with the tools and resources to build and prototype their next great idea! Come to the Maker Space and make the most of a social, multidiciplinary and collaborative environment that connects you with UW's creative community.

How it works

Anyone interested in using The 8 Maker Space must first complete our user agreement. This training is to ensure that you can use the lab space safely.

Please note: The user agreement and safety training must be completed annually.

Professional-grade equipment and tools

Featuring industry-standard equipment, generally unavailable to students in any other nonacademic campus venue, The 8 will be a place where you can develop skills on the machines and tools that professionals use.
