Atelier Open Lab

What is open lab?

We, Atelier Fablab’s team think that public access to our Fab Lab is essential:

a Fab Lab is about democratizing access to the tools to facilitate personal expression and invention.  So, Atelier Fablab will be opened to the public during defined timeslots.

Makers should come along with ideas (upgrade of toys, product development...) and they will be able to use the space, tools, and machines to work on their project.

An assistant will be here to give advices or help with the machines but this is not a class, the makers should be able to work on their project independently.


Opening Schedule:

Every Friday / Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm

Every Thursday from 10 am to 10 pm

For the May holidays, from May the 3rd to May the 13th from 10am to 6pm

Please book 48 hours in advance.



Adults / Children aged 13+

Kids below 13+ accompanied with adult

Since lab space is limited, the number of makers will be limited to 6 at the same time. Please register 48 hours in advance before coming.

Besides this list of machines, there are also sets of small electronics for the control of actuators/sensors, Arduino* prototype platforms.

*Arduino is an electronics prototyping platform that helps you control real-world objects.


If makers plan to use numerical controlled machine (3D printer and milling machine), they should bring their own computer.
