The Makercrate is a complete community maker space inside a 20 foot shipping container.
Designed and fabricated by Wellington's CoLab Makerspace, it became Fabriko's primary venue in post-earthquake Christchurch. The Makercrate quickly became a magnet for makers in the community as well as a showcase of new technology and new ways of thinking.
The mobile makerspace was transported to a number of events including TEDx Christchurch, the Festival of Education and has now been freighted to its new home in Masterton to help them activate their maker community.
An affordable venue to kickstart a movement.
Makercrates can be designed to suit the environment they land in.
The concept of the Makercrate is to act as a beachhead. Once a community is activated, then its impact has the ability to lead to a more permanent purpose built facility.
