FabLab Toscana organizes workshops run by an enthusiastic group of like-minded members. Visitors and new members of all skill levels are very welcome.

The workshop are by skill level, please read the course description or get in contact directly with the teacher:

  • Beginner
    • Our beginners workshops are for those just starting out and looking to learn the basics and have no formal training.
    • We recommend that you go on one of our beginners workshops before trying an base one, in order to get the most out of the more advanced material.
    • Our workshops are targeted at ages 14 and older
  • Base
    • Mastered beginner level skills, and is working on improving form and gaining the mastery of the subject
    • Base level workshop can be very broad and probably will cover the most of the subject.
    • Should be able to perform basic skills with minimal supervision; this level expects a certain level of maturity and dedication.
  • Advanced
    • Once you feel very comfortable with the basics, you can start tackling some more advanced projects.
    • Our advanced workshops assume you have worked with the technology before and mastered the skill and don’t spend time reviewing the basics.
    • Some advanced workshops may have additional prerequisites and/or require a portfolio submission; this will be indicated in the individual course descriptions.
  • Kids
    • We also offer workshops for kids from ages 6 to 14. Accompanying adults are welcome to join in the fun as well.
    • Kids get special membership rates
