Get to Know Us

INDOESTRI is an accessible and innovative 2000 m2 makerspace located at West of Jakarta with vast designated areas for woodwork, metalwork, and heavy industrial machinery, as well as programs for the curious to experiment and learn. We provide a wide variety of tools and machinery, and all sorts of resources that a creative mind would need to make, invent, prototype and explore without boundaries.

Why should a creative space exist? As we become more urban, and being constantly fed the digital experience, a yearning to include craftsmanship and experience that are practical in our lives is growing ever stronger. Ultimately, it's about focusing on something and actually enjoying it. It is not about getting it right on the first try. The journey, and results, is to be enjoyed, fully.

We are always looking forward and planning to grow bigger and stronger every day, and to always stick by our four core values: Youth, Process, Community, and Premium. These four core values have become the deeply ingrained ground rule and foundation that guide us from day one.

We believe that being young is about being intertwined with newness, being present, and having fun no matter what are you are.

We live by the #SelfMade spirit. we believe that process is more important than the destination itself. As our founder, Leonard Theosabrata, said, "The journey is irreplaceable, even by the destination itself."

Indoestri has a great community of learners who come here for the same purpose and reason, and that is to know about the process of making things and ideas happen.

We strive to deliver the best value for our customers in terms of program, skills, instructor, and service.


It’s not that we don’t believe in formal education, but we believe that we are all natural learners. Being SelfMade means that you’ve been through or in the process of shaping yourself with your own initiative. It’s because you want to act on your passion, that’s what makes you a SelfMade.

Being SelfMade means that you’ve been through or in the process of shaping yourself with your own initiative.

SelfMade is a true embodiment of the ‘making’ culture. It’s a community of learners, makers and all kinds of creative people. Being a SelfMade makes you appreciate hard work and perseverance of skill building, therefore appreciate other’s works even more. This is the time for you to make a difference by equipping yourself with the know-how and surround yourself in the SelfMade community.
