Indoestri Makerspace is housed in a two-story building with a backyard where a café named Dawn & Willow stands.
It is in West Jakarta near Rawa Buaya Station.
Established in 2014 by Leonard Theosabrata, the co-founder of Brightspot Market and The Goods Dept., Indoestri underlines the importance of process in order to achieve high quality products essential for building a sustainable brand.
It organizes workshops focusing on four disciplines: woodworking, metalworking, textile and leather and surface with the workshops including ukulele making, indigo batik making and lamp finishing.
But they have expanded their workshops to urban farming, photography, calligraphy and jewelry. Some of them are divided into intermediate and advanced levels, but both still welcome beginners as they will learn the basics in class as well.
The average duration for a workshop is around six to seven hours, but participants can extend depending on their curiosity of the theme.
Indoestri also has in-house seminars and guest workshops for those who want to build or revamp their own brands.
It provides three types of membership: full, limited and basic. Full membership, for instance, allows people to access their workshop upstairs where they provide woodworking and metalworking machines.
However it is not necessary for people to enroll as a member if they want to join a workshop. Workshop prices start at Rp 750,000 (US$49).
