The Curtin Library Makerspace is a learning environment that fosters creativity, exploration, innovation and play through making. By encouraging self-directed learning we support individuals and groups to learn new skills and develop maker projects. We also coordinate workshops, drop-in sessions, collaborative projects and events.
The Curtin Library Makerspace is located on Level 5 of the Robertson Library. We are keen to build our community of makers, so if you are interested in being involved or simply want to use the space, please visit or contact us!
The Curtin Library Makerspace was established in 2015, and has grown from a small group of makers gathering in a tiny room to a vibrant community and spacious learning environment.
The Makerspace aims to be a significant contributor to the development of a maker culture within Curtin University by encouraging cross-disciplinary sharing of ideas and experience and enabling the development of innovative projects that contribute to both the teaching and research work of the University. It monitors the research in and development of Makerspaces around the world and shares this intelligence with the University.
The Makerspace is the physical ‘hub’ or learning space for the community of makers within, or connected to, the Curtin community. We also seek to engage online, and with the wider community to build relationships and collaborative partnerships. In so doing, we aim to strengthen the reputation of the Curtin Library, and that of Curtin University, as a driver of innovation.
