What we're about

The Perth Artifactory is the Hackerspace/Makerspace in Perth, Western Australia. We currently occupy a large warehouse unit in Osborne Park and which is populated with tools, technology, desks and workstations.

Essentially we are a communal workshop where members who join get access to the tools and machinery in the space to make anything that they want. We currently have over 60 financial members and hundreds of regular visitors for our workshops and events.

If you would like to visit for a tour, come to one of our monthly Open Days (check the calendar), or to a Wednesday evening event. Before heading down check the webcams to make certain someone is there. Or sign-up for one of our regular meetup groups that use the space for various interests and activities.

We are dedicated to providing a place where people of all backgrounds with an interest in technology, the arts… etc can come together to work on projects, share ideas and socialise.

The name Artifactory is the joining of the words artifact and factory, so maybe we lost a “fact” (or two) along the way with the motto – Don’t think. Make.

"Every Saturday members flock to the Artifactory to get noisy, dirty and ambitious with the tools. A full weekend day affords us the time and lack of noise restrictions to build things that simply can't be done at home, so expect to see plenty of sawdust and swarf flying, painting, hammering, soldering, lasering, bands rehearsing and much more. Throughout the day different people drop in and out, and so it's an excellent day to see a real cross-section of the projects and people who are involved."
