The term fablab is an abbreviation of Fabrication Laboratory – a digital laboratory or workshop in which, thanks to computer controlled devices (such as 3D printers, milling machines or laser plotters), you can transform your ideas into prototypes or finished products. At the root of fablabs is the desire to democratize production and dissemination of technology. They provide open access to machines and tools, but also the knowledge and experience of other people. they respond to the needs of people with different competences, skills and material resources. Work of European fablabs is taken into consideration in the project titled “FABLABs – new technologies in adult education”, coordinated by Workshops of Culture in Lublin, Poland.
