Leicester Hackspace, a venue for makers of digital, electronic, mechanical and creative projects, opened on 1st March 2014 at the Makers Yard on Rutland St. In July 2016 we moved to the Innovations Centre, part of the De Montfort University with access from Bonners Lane. In December 2017 we moved to Faircharm Unit 40FF, Evelyn Drive, off the Narborough Road.
Like other Hackspaces across the country, we are working to build a community of practical and creative people and provide them with a place to pursue their projects, share techniques and concepts and learn new skills.
Members have access to bike repair equipment, computers, a 3D printer, 3D miller/scanner, power tools and many other resources 24 hours a day. We also run special courses and events, in programming, arduino, electronics, soldering, and more, which are open to members of the public.
If you have an existing interest in such projects, or wish to learn more, we hope you’ll join! Come to one of our Tuesday open nights to find out more.
