The Maker Library Network


The Maker Library Network is a worldwide association of designers and studios that have embraced maker culture to share their practices, processes and products. Each Maker Library is a combination of three elements: a workplace, a library and a gallery. The library element reflects the theoretical interests and happenings within the workspace. The gallery serves the studios and local community, as well as visitors to the online platform.

An exhibition showcasing the Maker Library Network launches at Vitra Design Museum Gallery on 12 June. Curated by Daniel Charny, the exhibition integrates making, showing and reading into one creative space, celebrating the people, projects and collaborations the network has nurtured over the last year.

During Art Basel week, 15-19 June, there will be a lively programme of drop-in workshops and skills demonstrations led by members of the Network including mask making, geodesic structures, himmeli mobile making and African loom work. Maker Librarians including Heath Nash from Cape Town, MAKlab from Glasgow, GRAS studio from Edinburgh and Machines Room from London will travel to Vitra to host the activities and share their skills with visitors.
