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 for more information.

For more information please get in touch via the contact us page, look at our Makerspace wiki, join our mailing list or go to our google group and join the conversations of both members and non-members.

The Makerspace has a strong sense of community engagement, with regular events and free open evenings at 7pm every Tuesday night. Past events have ranged from Astrolabe manufacture to Image recognition using AI.

Coming up soon at Maritime House:

  • Green Week Repair CafĂ© on Sunday Sept 23rd (12-4pm)
    If you’re thinking of chucking something out because it’s broken, bring it along. The Repair Cafe aims to fix things that would otherwise end up as landfill, so makers will take a look, and fix it if they can. This event is supported by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council.
