Make Works Budapest


Welcome to Make Works Budapest curated by Fab Lab Budapest. As a new member of Make Works, we laid emphasis on small independent local workshops with a focus on the ceramic industry, but we also aimed to highlight the diversity of the region by presenting manufacturers in the field of textile, printing, or digital fabrication. The listed factories and workshops aim to show the up and coming local creative scene of Budapest. 

Budapest represents a strong center in commerce, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment in Hungary. It’s is characterized by diverse industry players with an emerging sector of light industries such as textile, paper, wood, and crafts. Our aim is to support the local creative community by making the emerging creative hub of Budapest more accessible and visible globally.

Founded in 2011, FabLab Budapest is part of an international open innovation network with more than 1,750 members, presented in more than 100 countries. Our leading service is prototype development and production of installations and custom products. We are equipped for the manufacturing of prototypes and small-scale production. But FabLab Budapest is more than a simple design and manufacturing workshop. The network aims to democratize access to digital manufacturing technologies and related knowledge. The technologies we use were previously only available for the industry, so we place great emphasis on nurturing talent, sharing our expertise with infrastructure. The users of the Lab form an inspiring community. Many successful design and technology projects started with a simple conversation.

We are Réka, Milán, and Dávid, enthusiasts of local fabricators and manufacturers and always looking for new ways and opportunities to collaborate with the creative sector.
