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 workshops are held in Basildon, Rayleigh, Pitsea  (for members only)  but also meets regularly as a pop-up FabLab on third Sundays at the Cordite Room, Wat Tyler Country Park, Pitsea and at other loactions throughout Essex.

Register for Meetup membership on FabLab Essex Meetup site to learn more about the various locations where we meet and the specific agendas for the week.
