Norwich Hackspace is a group of people who enjoy making and recreating things, inventing, investigating, collaborating and generally tinkering. Membership is currently a minimum £15 a month.
We work with new technologies such as 3D printing, laser cutting, electronics such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi, robotics and more traditional forms of making as textiles, ceramics, animation, etc.
The Hackspace is funded by membership subs and not reliant on grants or donations. It can scale with needs of the community that funds it. Occasionally we receive funding for specific purposes.

Now the plug packs have come down in cost there seems to be plenty of hacking potential here - A definite upgrade on the 360 Kinects we have been using.
Tim 3D printed a couple of designs his son had put together in Blender and the laser cutter got some use as well: Alan laser cut a spool holder he designed for his 3D printer. We started a 'members' projects' wh...
