The Maker Studio


The Maker Studio

DCDL’s Maker Studios are Do-It-Yourself design spaces located in Delaware Main and Liberty Branch libraries. We will help provide the tools and knowledge to get you up and running on any of our equipment. Specialized equipment includes 3D printers, vinyl cutters, a sublimation printer, laser cutter/engraver, sewing machines and more available for use by the public during open lab hours. Computers with professional design software are also available at both Maker Studios. Not all equipment is available at both locations; please check the location tabs to learn more about the equipment available at each branch.

While our Maker Studios are truly DIY spaces, our staff members will continue to train you how to run all the equipment so you can make your design ideas a reality, and then you can work independently on future projects.

Just getting started? Drop in anytime the Maker Studio is open and take a look around or get individual help from our staff. We also offer classes every Wednesday at our Delaware Maker Studio that will help you learn how to use any of the specialized equipment or software programs in our Maker Studio.
