I have an idea for a project but I don’t know how to make it, will I be able to get help from Makerspace staff?

Absolutely! We’d love to help you out with your project. If you have specific questions or need some guidance with the machines, please speak to one of our staff members or email our Learning Coordinator, Yass, at yass@yorkregionmakers.com.

Can I store my projects or materials in the Makerspace?

Yes. We do have temporary storage that you can use for your projects and/or materials for a period of 3-4 weeks. If your project is of a very large size, please speak with a staff member in advance to ensure that we can store it. For more details, please refer to the Rules and Guidelines section of the Handbook.

Is there a dress code or required protective equipment?

All members working in the shop area must always wear closed-toe shoes and safety glasses. Additionally, we strongly recommend you bring hearing protection, keep long hair tied back, and try to avoid wearing any jewelry or long sleeve shirts with loose cuffs.

Do I need to book certain machines before I use them?

Yes. We use an online booking system for the laser machines, the finishing room, CNC Router and Milling machine. Please note that you may not book more than one machine in a given time slot. For further inquiries about booking machines, please speak to a staff member.

Which machines require certification?

You must be certified to use the CNC machinery, as well as the laser machines. To use any other tools in the workshop, you will need a general workshop safety certification. For certification course dates, please consult our website.
