FabLab Amsterdam is one of the oldest Fab Labs in Europe, established in 2007 by the Waag Society. The Waag building in Nieuwmarkt is one of Amsterdam’s oldest buildings that is not a church and served as a city gate and a guildhall among its many roles. The Lab plays an important role in the global digital fabrication training course Fab Academy. Intertwined with the activities in the FabLab are Waag’s other initiatives the WetLab (a garage biology or DIYbio lab) and TextileLab.
