Frequently Asked Questions

Q:

What is a Makerspace?

A:

A makerspace can be defined as a place where like minded individuals come together to learn, create, collaborate and experiment.

Make Nashville’s makerspace can be thought of as a gym but instead of being packed with exercise equipment our space is packed with all kinds of really cool tools that our members get to use in their journey of making things.

If you aren’t sure how to use one of our tools or have a project that is over your head you’ve also come to the right place. We know that coming into a place like this can be overwhelming which is why we have an extensive workshop program to ensure that if you want to learn something you will have the opportunity.
