We create the hero of tomorrow!

People in Norway are very good at consuming, but have little knowledge of how things are made. Technology and machine handling can seem distant and frightening to many, but the truth is that this has become so affordable and accessible to most that it is completely possible to "get up on the horse." We know that many of our jobs will be replaced by robots and automation within a short time, and then we have 2 possibilities; one is giving up and the other is taking control of the technology that replaces us. We choose to bet on the last one.

In Kvæfjord Public Workshop you will be able to meet other people who are interested in intellectual development, ingenuity, crafts and technology. You will have rich access to different knowledge as well as access to modern machines and tools so you can get your idea alive. The Public Workshop is open to all, but if you are under 14 years old, you has to be followed my a adult.

The Workshop will also be Borkenes school (and possibly Rå high school) new or expanded workshop with state-of-the-art equipment that children and adolescents can access after school time.



The Public Workshop will promote creativity and entrepreneurship through establishing a physical training center for crafts and technology. We work to promote interest and curiosity for technology, science, craftsmanship and entrepreneurship / innovation. The association's local is becoming an exercise and training center with high-tech machines and a competent environment. It will be like any fitness center, just that this will be for the brain and creativity.
