Southampton’s hackerspace/makerspace

A hackerspace (also referred to as a hacklab, makerspace, or hackspace) is a community-operated workspace where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital art or electronic art, can meet, socialise and/or collaborate. [wikipedia]

SoMakeIt is Southampton’s makerspace has existed for nearly 4 months. It is open Tuesdays 7:30 – 10:00pm and Saturdays 2:00 – 8:00pm and is located in Holybrook rd. We have a website and wiki and are home to the longer-running group Southackton.

We are run by our members, for our members, and are entirely funded by member donations. I should probably point out that I am also a trustee of SoMakeIt.

We are building a growing collection of tools (including a metalworking lathe!) and 3d printers, as well as some pretty good skills and knowledge, so come down and have a look at what we do!

Please spread the word and tell a friend about us too!
