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.
MIXXER made possible by generous donations from:
Mark and Janet Shill
MIXXER 1325 N. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. Winston-Salem, NC 27101

MIXXER’s community focus will create new opportunities for stronger social connections that lead to a vibrant community in which to live, work, and play. MIXXER is opening at a point in Winston-Salem’s revitalization when these resources are considered necessary by a large portion of the creative and innovative communities that are driving that revitalization.
