What we're about

Welcome to the Footscray Maker Group!

We empower our community of makers from different disciplines, backgrounds and skill levels by providing opportunities for learning, collaboration and co-creation in an huge array of projects and initiatives.

Our main aim is to give everyone a supportive environment where they can make, all while promoting exchange and sharing amongst members -  the sharing of tools, ideas, skills, knowledge, space and equipment.

Whether you’re a hardware entrepreneur, engineer, designer, tinkerer, craftsperson, artist, or someone who wants to experiment and explore through the making of physical objects, you’re always welcome at the Footscray Maker Group’s regular Meetup events.

Training, tools, prototyping equipment and event topics include:

3D printing

Additive manufacturing

Digital Fabrication

Metalworking

Open source hardware development (e.g. arduino)

Prototyping

Traditional hand crafts

Woodworking

So keep an eye out for our next Meetup event - coming soon!

Arduino Users Group - I for one, welcome our microcontroller overloads

Do you like to tinker with microcontrollers? Do you want to tinker with microcontrollers? Do you just want to find out what a microcontroller is? Then this is the user group for you! This is the second Arduino User Group meetup at Footscray Maker Lab, building on the fantastic demos and discussions from last month. This is a user group for Arduino users, but also open to people using other microcontroller systems and platforms like the RaspberryPi or Zigbee. It is an informal meeting - we encourage you to bring along what you are working on, any ideas you have, and an inquisitive mind! Want to keep the conversation going? Join us on slack: https://footscraymakerlab.slack.com (send us a meet up message to get an invite)
