MakeHaven is a gathering place and workshop for makers, creators, tinkerers and dreamers. The environment supports the development and collaboration on a wide variety of projects, including: mechanics, electronics, crafts, digital art, biology and woodworking. Through cooperative projects led by MakeHaven members the project and program participants gain a greater understanding of how to create, repair and reuse items. In addition to project oriented activities the general public will benefit from skill building workshops hosted in the space.

Through talks, classes, workshops, collaborative projects, and other activities, we want to encourage research, knowledge exchange, learning, and mentoring in a safe, clean space. We provide educational spaces for teaching practical skills and theory of technology, science, and art. We provide work space, storage, and other resources for projects related to art, science, and technology that will benefit the individual members' personal growth in their fields of interest, encouraging the individual members to share their projects and knowledge for the betterment of society through art, science and technology. We create, learn, and teach, individually and as a group, inviting members of the community in the greater New Haven area and the world. We develop, support the development of, and provide resources for the development of free and open source software and hardware for the benefit of society. We promote collaboration across disciplines for the benefit of cultural, charitable, and scientific causes.

Our current location in the arts district of downtown New Haven CT, roughly 2000 square feet, contains the start of: an electronics shop, wood shop and kitchen. We are planning development of a machine shop, dark room, wet lab, crafting area and wet lab. Everyone is welcome to use our many resources. Members can find others to create with and/or to find help with their projects. We also encourage members to help others with their projects. MakeHaven encourages all members to come to the facility to learn, teach, share and create.
