The Makerspace is a collaborative creative space for Puget Sound students, faculty and staff interested in doing hands-on projects in an informal setting at the Collins Library. It’s a collaborative work space for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. It’s a place to develop and create something out of nothing and explore.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit makerspace located in South Edmonds. We offer the use of tools such as 3D printers, laser cutters, sewing machines and more to our members. We also offer classes and workshops to learners of all ages on a variety of S.T.E.A.M. related subjects.
The CoMotion MakerSpace is a community-focused workshop. We have a wide range of capabilities with sewing machines, VR headsets, woodworking tools, and 3D printers under one roof. Make anything – be it a prototype, connection, or community.
