Making stuff that matters is the theme for the day. Now, that doesn’t mean we will be building solutions to all the world’s main problems (we’ll save that for the BBQ the day after 😉 ) But we will aim for things that matter to you. And above all we will aim to have fun, and to make sure we all get excited about ‚making’.

We’ll have a range of machines available (laser cutters, 3d printers, milling machine, micro-electronics), and we are especially pleased that the mobile FabLab of the Provincial Library Fryslan will be parked in front of our home for two whole days! An instructor will be there as well to teach you how to operate the machines yourself. See for more about the mobile FabLab.

During the day we will be working in teams to create things together, following a process we have designed. At two points during the day we will have a short round of presentations. Some of you have indicated you have a story to tell, and we of course want to create the possibility for you to do that. If you have a story you want to share, do let us know, and we will aim to make you part of the program. We have space for about 6 such stories, and 2 of those slots are currently filled.
