We are a creative place that strengthens the in-person community.
FAB9 is a relaxed shared workshop in which members feel comfortable and to which they return time and again to socialise, to relax, and to enjoy the company of those around them.
At home, we are alone, most likely engulfed in social media and depressing news. At work, we are busy, under pressure, and regularly perform monotonous tasks. Neither of these places can offer the space we need, nor the tools and support for creative self expression.
Now, more than ever, we’ve learned the importance of physical and mental wellbeing and building meaningful relationships.
And that’s why we are here.
Our mission is to enable the universal desire to create and be well. With most people spending much more time indoors, working from home, and drifting further from meaningful social connections, we are set to offer a space for the creative process, mindful tactile activities and a friendly community.
FAB9 is the perfect place to start a new hobby, schedule a block of free creative time, or meet likeminded people. We are open to total beginners, hobbyists, artists and creative economy businesses.
