Our workshop

Learn more about our space, members, machines & services!

The city of Valby was supposed to move their library in another building. So they decided to transorm this new and empty place into a Public service to give access to digital culture to anyone.

After almost a decade now, the community is growing too much and the old library is not big enough, so they decided to open a spare place in another part of the city.

2 locations are now available to make (almost) anything in the Fablab.

Rasmus is probably the one that we all know. However, he’s not alone !

We are a team of superUsers !

It’s another name for the volunteers who has the knowledge and skill set to help you get started on your project.

A SuperUser is a Fablab volunteer that wants to use the Fablab frequently for their projects. In addition, they want to help make it a fun and inspiring place for everybody by maintaining tools and improving the facilities, teach other users and taking shifts to open locked equipment. If you want to know more then drop by when we are open.

The steps to be a SuperUser will be:

  • Participate in three open labs with signed paperBe a Volunteer for a month, without full access to the lab.
  • At least you have one Open Day in the month after application.
  • After a month the SuperUsers will vote for the volunteer

The community is quite huge. And everyday people can come and use the facilities.

There is no membership – anyone can use the Fablab for free without making reservations by following these 4 rules:

  1. No commercial production

  2. Leave the Fablab cleaner than it was before

  3. Share your projects

  4. Help others and maintain the tools

To access locked equipment, only volunteers are there to give access to the machines, workshops or intros. If you want to access locked equipment at all times, you can become a volunteer aka SuperUser.

The fablab is sustainable thanks to the city of Copengagen - Valby quarter, in south-west of the capital.

The cultural center is supporting the cost of the daily life of the Fablab.
