About us

We are a community / social group for hackers, makers and doers with the intention of socialising, creating, and potentially make amazing things in a space/workshop with access to tools that you may otherwise not be able to have hands-on with thanks to the contributions and communal efforts of its members.

We are entirely membership run and funded, it is a not-for-profit so every penny made goes back into providing services and facilities for its members, it is run by members for members with a little direction from appointed directors.

This means we can have amazing tools such as a laser cutter, metal lathe, computer systems, welding kit, various saws, a 3D printer or two, a vinyl cutter and a silly amount of electronics, with some quad copters thrown in.

See what we have been getting up to on our blog.


Get involved

Our open nights are every Tuesday from 7pm til late and its our most popular night where we have a number of members and visitors in.

Some people have a project they are working on or they are thinking about if that’s you then why not bring it along we like to see what other people are up to. If you need some help, tools or space to work on it then the hackspace might be a good place to work on it.

Its not essential to have a project though, come down look around, socialise, learn to use a new tool, tinker, get ideas, get involved.

Some people have a project in mind that they would like our space to create, where possible rather than do it for you we prefer to give you the tools and help give you the skills for you to do it yourself.

We would love to be and do that much more, which is why you should come along to an open night and make it what you want it to be, because that’s how we all started, too. Ideally you would join us as a member with all the perks that come with it: Become a member
