Mind’s Eye Manufactory is dedicated to the development of bright ideas and curious minds. We love helping people take what’s in their imagination and make it with their hands. Mind’s Eye is the product of our own imaginations, and as a fledgling endeavor, it’s being re-imagined, morphed, and expanded upon every day. This fun and fantastic makerspace began as an inspired dream and is now unfolding in the town of Ferndale, on California’s north coast.
Part woodshop, part metal fab shop, and part science laboratory, the atmosphere is a blend of old-time boat shop, blacksmith’s forge, artist studio, and cutting-edge proto-typing lab. We offer a creative space where imaginations are given room to flourish, and where students and members gain access to all of the tools and guidance needed to manifest their most extra-ordinary creative ideas.
Mind’s Eye Manufactory strives to inspire a sense of wonder with the physical and material world by promoting a wide range of on-going "maker" activities, and by hosting a schedule of truly unique workshops and day-classes taught by expert artisan-instructors. Exploration within the wide world of materials, and cross-pollination of artisan techniques are at the heart of our super-creative makerspace culture.
