What is a Makerspace?

A maker space is like a community garden for technology & fabrication enthusiasts. It is a place where electronics meets welding, meets lasers, meets software, meets artist. An exploratory, if you will, where geeks and crafters collaborate to make cool stuff.

What Can I Make?

You will be able to cut, weld, print, carve, design, shape, all sorts of things, and more. In addition to flexible work space and community space you will find specialty tools for a wide variety of projects. When you join MIXXER, you may even make some new friends.

Thank You to our founding partners:

Making is Therapeutic

I sense a certain release of tension in people as we get accustomed to working together. I find that working with one’s hands is restorative, and even therapeutic.

Teamwork is Easy at MIXXER.

I have been blown away by the generosity of the Winston-Salem community over the past month. Hundreds of volunteer hours, donations of furniture, tools and electronics equipment, and people working together to solve problems and design solutions and doing it with generous hearts energizes our active members.
