FabLab Essex is a local branch of an International Community initiative that aims to empower people all over the World  to be Creative using the opportunities that the Digital Technology era has given us.

All FabLabs commit to the FabLab Charter which has been developed over theshowroom-300x201 years to ensure that the FabLab will always support the needs of the community while actively encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation in a Creative Digital Environment.

The fundamental concept was laid down over ten years ago by Professor Neil Gerstenfeld of MIT Boston and MIT continue to provide the overall leadership for the project while allowing the individual FabLabs to develop their own specific ways of interacting with their local community.

FabLab Essex is located in Basildon but also meets regularly as a pop-up FabLab on Sundays at the Cordite Room, Wat Tyler Country Park, Pitsea
