What is the Fab Lab?

A Fab Lab is a space where people can come to take advantage of tools, resources, and technology, using traditional and digital fabrication equipment to make all kinds of things.

Our 1900 sq. ft. space is home to a host of digital fabrication equipment. While many of our machines are controlled by software, we’re big believers in the balance of tech and tradition; there’s a small woodworking area, as well as a wide variety of hand tools.


Fab Labs offer the opportunity to dream, design, and refine ideas. One can come in and experiment for fun, or dedicate time to develop a fully fledged product. At the CoA Fab Lab, our goal is to offer a communal space for people to make, to share, and to benefit from their work.
