Fab Lab Maker Hub is a project created by Fab Lab Manorhamilton and funded by Leitrim Local Enterprise Office and the Upper Shannon and Erne Future Economy (USEFE) project. The project is based in the USEFE regions of Leitrim, Cavan, Longford and Roscommon. The Maker Hub is a mobile Fab Lab that travels to each county providing training and services to SMEs, Micro Enterprises, Schools and Community Groups. The overall aim of the Maker Hub is to foster innovation, education and new business development whilst providing unprecedented access to digital fabrication technology.
Fab Lab Maker Hub team comprises Stuart Lawn, Leo Scarff and Ali Farrell. All three run their own successful businesses and previously had long careers working with multinational companies. The team have over sixty combined years of expertise and their skills cover the broad areas of technology, design, engineering, business development and community engagement.
We are based out of Manorhamilton in County Leitrim but as we are a mobile Fab Lab you can mostly find us out on the road somewhere (Covid-19 permitting). Our main area of work covers the Upper Shannon and Erne Future Economies region in the counties of Leitrim, Cavan, Roscommon and Longford, although we can and do cover the 26 counties when the occasion arises.
