Monthly updates...

IMPORTANT: Sadly our regular first Sunday of the month sessions will no longer be happening. Friday evenings though will be carrying on as normal with a few exceptions.
Here's what the revised schedule looks like this:
  • Friday 1st July (18:30)
  • Sunday ??? July - Sunday sessions are now cancelled
  • Friday 8th July (18:30)
  • Friday 15th July (19:00 - 21:30)
  • Friday 22nd July - CANCELLED
  • Friday 29th July (18:30)
There's also exciting news in the land of the Surrey & Hampshire Hackspace/Makerspace. Our directors have been working hard to try to find us a permanent location. Obviously this is going to mean changes; a new location, a need to charge membership fees (to cover the costs), and a new space to make our own.
Nothing's certain yet, and it will take time. But watch this space, and the Forum for updates.

Mark puts virtual reality to good use flipping some virtual burgers. By carefully combining a soldering iron and a drill press you can apply metal inserts into a 3D printed object. Spinning a yarn at the Surrey & Hampshire Makerspace.
A box of Lego gears; soon to be part of a ingenious mechanical project. A small flotilla of 3D printed boats (test pieces for printer calibration). A very early prototype of a stair climbing robot.
A special magnetically sensitive sheet being used to show the magnetic field from the magnets in an iPad cover.

Makerspace close to hitting funding target!

We are doing incredibly well with our membership pledges! Thank you to all who have generously pledged so far. You can view a few graphs detailing the pledge amounts here.

We are now still looking for just a few more founding members to help us reach our target. If anyone would like to pledge membership to help us have our very own 24/7 Makerspace, please fill out this questionnaire.

For more details of the costing we are expecting, please see the posts in the Spacening thread on the forum, which is updated with the different premises we are investigating.

Thanks once again to all pledgers for their support.

We are on the brink of getting a space with the right amount of committed pledgers. Thank you for your support.
