Know Before You Go
All are welcome at the Wells Library Makerspace! Drop in during our open hours or schedule an appointment with our Digital Engagement Librarian if you’d like to visit us at another time.
Discover a new hobby, learn a new skill, or ace your assignment. We have a variety of equipment items that students can borrow or use in the library. Use our booking system to reserve your equipment in advance.
Our workshops offer a chance to explore tools and technologies, learn new skills, or unwind and destress. Registration is always free and all skill levels are welcome. Past workshop topics include 3D Printed Earrings, Animated GIFs, Visible Mending, Introduction to Soldering, and more. Register for an upcoming workshop.

Where is the Makerspace?
We are located on the first floor of the West Tower of Wells Library, across from Writing Tutorial Services. If you enter from 10th street, make a right and you'll find us just inside the entrance to the West Tower.
We believe in process over product. The skills you develop, the feelings you experience, and the relationships you build in the Makerspace are all valuable, regardless of the finished product.
