Introduction

"We teach, we learn, we share" We sometimes hold workshop sessions where members of the hackspace teach a particular skill to anyone who wants to join in. Even if you aren't a member, you are encouraged to join us for a workshop session! Depending on the workshop, there may be a fee for entry. Although where possible we try to make them free but with a recommended donation.
