We have already accomplished so much since Quelab’s founding in 2010, and it is an honor to be recognized for what we have done so far by reaching the finalist level for the Mayor’s Prize.

It is wonderful to see people finding their inspiration to become “makers” of things, taking small steps like learning to solder, turning wood on a lathe, or 3D printing an object can inspire so much more! At Quelab you might see a child learning to code, a professional artist learning to use a laser cutter, or an entrepreneur connecting with other makers to figure out how to build a product.
Quelab is more than just a place to make things, it’s also a community of makers. We hold formal classes and we also learn from each other via informal connections that bring new ideas to life. More than a dozen entrepreneurial businesses make use of the tools, equipment, and community at our Albuquerque makerspace for diverse needs from meeting and classroom space, to prototyping new products, and even manufacturing final goods. The strength of our community is why MAKE Magazine selected Quelab as one of their Most Interesting Makerspaces in America.
