If you follow us on social media or are a member of our mailing list, you have probably seen our survey asking you for your ideas on what we can change to make the space (still open here).
You asked us to…
Rearrange to make more space
We’ve rejigged the space to make it a bit more collaborative and to make it a bit more open:
More opening times to non members
We have a regular Saturday open day (hackSaturdays!) planned, roughly once per month, in addition to the regular Wednesday Open Nights. Keep an eye out for notifications via twitter, facebook and the blog!
(i’d like to learn) Laser cutting
We have a laser cutting workshop in the pipeline, watch this space!
The next hackSaturday will be from 10:00 until 16:00 on Saturday the 26th of May
Wednesdays have been Open Nights since version 1.0 of York Hackspace, way back when we used to meet in the Black Swan. However, we understand that weeknights aren’t the best time for everyone to visit the space.
We are therefore pleased to announce that we are starting up hackSaturdays: different day, different time, but the same original recipe as the Wednesday Open Evenings.

For more details about our open nights, see the wiki.
Curious about what to bring?
All you need is yourself, enthusiasm and curiosity. Feel free to bring a project, things to make, things to do, things you want help with, or things you just can’t find time to do elsewhere.
What does the hackspace have to offer?
You’ll be free to use whatever tools and facilities you want, subject to the necessary training and/or supervision. Non-members will be expected to contribute towards hardware, electronic components etc (members get all this stuff for free!) if it’s more than a few bits and pieces. We have a fast Internet connection sponsored by Andrews & Arnold which you’re welcome to use. And a tuckshop!
