Norwich has a hackspace - Join us

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.
