Espoonlahti Makerspace

Espoonlahti Makerspace is located in Soukka library. Welcome!

Makerspace is a versatile place for making and learning for all library customers. The devices can be used within the library, for example here you have access to 3D printers, a sewing machine, a vinyl cutter and a heat press. To make a reservation for any of the devices go to: https://varaamo.espoo.fi/. You can log into Varaamo with a Yle, a Facebook or a Google account.

The library staff helps with the fundamentals of the Makerspace outside of rush hours. You can contact us through our email: espoonlahtipaja@espoo.fi.
