Ever had a good idea for something and wished that you could make it? There’s a worldwide community of people who shared your wish, and then decided to do something about it. This is the origin of the ‘Makerspace’ movement, that aims to give people the facilities and skills to make their ideas into real objects.
Every week we have a Free Tuesday Open Evening from 7-9 pm, so drop in and see what people like you are creating in the Makerspace. Full members of the Makerspace have 24/7 access to all the Makerspace facilities, see the Membership sign-up page . There is also a Makerspace Wiki, Facebook & Twitter.
Coming soon at Maritime House:
On the third Thursday of each month Basingstoke Makerspace members get together for “Pi Night”. This month that will be on 18th Oct at 7:00pm.
This is an open meeting for all members to pose and answer any Raspberry Pi related questions. Any Pi based topics can be brought up. There is normally a range of levels of experience available, from those who want to know how to get started to those connecting their Pi to electronics and manipulating the GPIO pins via C.
For our November Photography Workshop we are going to try out a number of Standard Studio Portrait Photography lighting set ups. Come along and learn about Studio Lighting. To take part your Camera must have a flash hot shoe and be capable of being used in manual mode.Rebecca Sophia will be joining us to act as our model for the evening.
This meetup is FREE to Fully Paid Up members of Basingstoke Makerspace, Non-members are welcome but there is a £25 charge.
The Makerspace has a strong sense of community engagement, with regular events and free open evenings at 7 pm every Tuesday night. Past events have ranged from Astrolabe manufacture to Image recognition using Artificial Intelligence. (AI). From 9:30 pm we usually join up with Basingstoke Friends for a social get-together at the Maidenhead pub.
