Fab Lab Cockermouth is a place where anybody can make virtually anything. It is a digital fabrication workshops which is set up to give people a place to design and make and to inspire and educate. It is open to young people, adults, businesses, engineers, inventors and entrepreneurs. The idea was conceived by renowned scientist and inventor Neil Gershenfeld from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. There are Fab Labs opening across the world and we are lucky enough to have a Fab Lab here in West Cumbria. It has two bases; one in Cockermouth on Derwent Mills Commercial Park and one at the West Lakes Academy in Egremont.
