Our Community

At the core, we're a collective group of people from different walks and working in divergent industries with the shared goal of following our purpose and passion through work. Our space may facilitate the development of projects, but it's the community who amplifies the process and turns it into an experience. That's what makes our space, and what we do, so special.

Every business within Makerspace North operates independently, offering services, products, or workshops, to enhance the space and grow the community. We create alongside one another sharing tools, equipment, resources, and knowledge.
