MATERIAL & HACKS × FabCafe
FabCafe is a space where new ideas take shape using digital fabrication tools. The second floor of FabCafe has now become FabCafe MTRL.
FabCafe MTRL, like MTRL KYOTO, is a coworking space that takes the word "material" as it's core theme.. From the latest sensors and bio-technology, to traditional materials, a wide variety of materials are available for all to try.
"I've been coming to FabCafe for a while, but I thought I'd like to try getting into some more serious making."
"I'm working on a two-month long project and I'm going to need to use a 3D printer and laser cutter.."
At FabCafe we believe an open community of makers is important, so we invite all members of the maker community, from creators to entrepreneurs, to see this space as a hub for new ideas.
UPCOMING EVENTS Various events, workshops, study sessions
PROJECTS Collaboration with FabCafe MTRL
