Helios Makerspace is a non-profit workshop in Montreal dedicated helping the community materialize ideas by providing easy access to tools and training. We provide access to a wide selection of equipment, a great creative community and a broad base of expertise. We pride ourselves on always having trained staff on-site.
Tools and space
We aim to provide the space and tools to the community to materialize almost any idea. Our goal is to provide access to as many tools as possible.
You can view a complete list and details about the space here.
We love change at Helios! If you have questions regarding our equipment offerings, please feel free to contact us or visit us directly.
How it works
During our opening hours, Helios is open to for visits. Volunteers are always on location to show you around and answer your questions. We are located a short walk from Saint-Henri metro.
Accessing the Makerspace is like going to a gym. You can get a membership which gives you access during business hours to the large set of tools at the workshop. By getting a membership, you are helping the workshop to pay the rent and maintaining the tools
You can come to the workshop and use the tools available at the Makerspace. If you have questions, volunteers are on location to help out and walk you through the process. After a few days at the Makerspace, you will know how to use all the tools without problem.
Training and Tutorials

We always welcome inquiries from potential new instructors! As part of our mission to make creating a part of life, we hold classes not only to help teach people fabrication skills, but also to help people make a living from their craft. If you have an art or craft you love and a passion for teaching, we would love to help you share it.
We also now have a system for booking private classes with our volunteers!
