LIFT-OFF. MIXXER is now open.

You told us what you need in a community makerspace. We listened and we have a plan. Now all we need is YOU.


It takes a community to build MIXXER. Sign up for our newsletter to keep up to date. We’ll be announcing ways for you to get involved soon.


There are great things happening in Winston-Salem. We will be posting updates on developments in the maker community.

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.

Making it Happen

Two weeks into 2018 and MIXXER has moved from an empty shell of a building, with no heat by the way, to a functional makerspace. Once the heat was turned on and the city released the building to us, the MIXXER community swarmed the building and we have a lot to show...

Ten Thousand Hours

MIXXER will be open to the public Wednesday through Saturday from 12 pm until 8 pm, and 12 pm to 5 pm on Sunday, until the studios are fully operational.
Members are allowed to coordinate with staff to access the studios outside of those hours, based on conditions at the time requested.
Volunteers will be scheduled to assist with special projects on a case by case basis.
This schedule is subject to change to accommodate establishing a safe and well-equipped work environment for our members and volunteers. Please bear with us during this exciting time of development, or better yet, come be a part of building MIXXER.
