Who Are We? What Do We Do?


We’re currently open on Saturday afternoons from 2pm-6pm (and also one or two evenings during the week depending on when volunteers are available). You can keep an eye on when we’re open by joining our forum: https://groups.google.com/g/sheffield-hardware-hackers. If you’d like to come down and have a tour do let us know beforehand so we can make sure the space isn’t too crowded.

For more information, please e-mail us…


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.
