In The Pontio Centre: A Resource for Inventors, Designers and Makers in North Wales 14 Dec 2018 I wrote about the FabLab at the Pontio Arts and Innovation Centre in Bangor. I have recently learned of another resource for inventors, designers and markers on the other side of Snowdon at Porthmadog.
The resource is known as Ffiws and is to be found at 125 High Street just a short walk from Cadwalader’s ice cream parlour which is not just a Welsh but a UK culinary treasure. FFIWS’s website describes it as “a co-operative maker space” containing a variety of different high-tech equipment, as well as electronic equipment and hand tools.
According to the website, the equipment includes:
- a 3D Printer
- Laser Cutter
- CNC Machine
- Heat Press
- Mug Press
- Sublimation Printer
- Vinyl Cutter
and more, There are pictures of some of those items on the website.
