The Lacey Makerspace

Mission

We empower makers to bring ideas to life and cultivate an innovative economy through training on high-tech equipment in a regional workspace for learning new skills.

The foundation of our work relies on three main principles: Education, Inspiration and Community

  • Education: Offering instruction on advanced design and fabrication tools to help thoughts become things.
  • Inspiration: Promoting innovation and entrepreneurship, providing opportunities for individual and business growth.
  • Community: Fostering collaboration and outreach as a hub of a larger innovative ecosystem of business and networking resources.

 

Our Vision

To be a catalyst for regional economic growth by providing a portal to the modern world of workforce and economic development, fostering a culture of creative abundance.

Our Values

Lacey MakerSpace is a safe community where makers of all ages and skill levels can engage in both self-directed and scheduled programming promoting creativity, problem solving, skill building and collaboration.
