Who Are We? What Do We Do?

Coronavirus and visiting us…

We are beginning to open on a limited basis, with a few limitations. If you are new to the space and interested in attending, we request you contact the trustees a few days in advance of attending.

We are currently limiting our opening to Saturdays between 1400 – 1800 with social distancing and limitations on numbers.

We are hoping to increase the number of sessions soon.


Sheffield Hackspace (Sheffield Hardware Hackers and Makers CIC) is a non-profit, member-run hackspace for central Sheffield. Together we’re building a workshop and community to help people in Sheffield get involved in “the creative use of technology and tools for hobby-scale projects in fields such as computers, robotics, machining, technology, science, digital art or electronic art“.

We’re interested in whatever our members are interested in! We currently have members interested in electronics (including Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and ESP8266), 3D printing and CAD, textiles (including clothing and kites), woodwork and metalwork, crafts, photography, high altitude ballooning… Some of these projects get highlighted on this site, but there’s no substitute for coming along to meet the group.

Being a Do-ocracy, decisions are taken by those who choose to get involved and do the making. We’re always keen for people with a wide range of interests and skill levels to join, swap ideas, learn from each other, and build new things.

If you’re interested, get in touch with us and consider becoming a member. Or come along to one of our Friday night open sessions (every week from 6pm – 9pm) and see what we’re about.
