MakerSpace Derby Maker Space HackerSpace Hacker Space

A new shared work space is coming to the city for Derby Makers, Creatives and Hobbyists alike.

A MakerSpace, also called a HackerSpace or FabLab, is a community funded and run workspace that allows you to access and use equipment, tools and resources all under one roof.

These spaces also allow you to meet other people who share similar interests, collaborate with others and learn new skills as well as pursue personal and collaborative projects.

There are many diverse areas within a MakerSpace offering different equipment and tools such as; 3D Printers, Laser cutters, Woodworking, Metalworking, Machining, Arts & Crafts, Computing, Electronics etc


We have found a facility and are about to launch a crowdfund campaign to pay for the first year’s rent, utilities, insurance and construction costs for the entrance/frontage and toilet.

You can help by joining our FaceBook page, and share it with your friends. You can also link people to this website where we hope to have as much information made available as possible.

If you would like to help by volunteering or join our growing team then please visit our forum and introduce yourself. We are also looking for donations and loans of equipment, tools and resources that we can then use at the space. If you have something to offer then please use the Contact Us page.
