757 Makerspace is a membership-based, high-tech workshop and prototyping center – it’s a “gym for innovators”. If you are not familiar, our space has a diverse group of people of all ages and skill levels – writers, artists, programmers, teachers, students, engineers, designers, crafters, hackers, prop makers, costumers and all purpose makers and tinkerers who love to create things that come together for the sole joy of making and expanding the maker spirit. If you have an idea for something that you have always wanted to make but did not have the knowledge, skill or specialized tools to do so here you can learn more about design, creation and prototyping to turn your ideas into reality.
If you can Imagine It, you can Make It!
The maker movement is accelerating innovation and making it possible for a whole society to activate its latent potential . This is grassroots innovation and it’s going to set up a lot of opportunity. – Karim Asri

We are growing, a few months ago this was just a concept and in that time we have taken an old unrecognized piece of history (our building was the former trolley maintenance building for the City of Norfolk) and have been working hard to transform it into our dream space. From here you help to shape what this becomes as you venture into 3D printing, laser cutters/engravers/cutters, CNC’s, welding and more.
Take the first step and come out to visit and start making something AWESOME with us.
