What we're about

This group is for members and visitors to Makespace, a community inventing shed in Cambridge, UK. The meetups are organised by community members both in the space and elsewhere in Cambridge.

To tweak your email preferences for the group, please go to http://meetup.makespace.org/settings/

We would love to meet:

* Community members, enthusiasts, and educational groups who could benefit from a lab in which to work together, network, socialise, and draw on the expertise of others

* People working within local industries looking to innovate in ways that require new skills, equipment and contacts

* Companies and consultancies that support innovation and prototyping, and who could provide training, support, leading to the sale of their services

* Innovators needing to produce physical prototypes to further their ideas

If this could include you, please help us maintain and grow Makespace by joining now, telling us:

* Who you are, and any company/group affiliation
* What you could contribute to and/or how you could benefit from Makespace
* Any other ideas, requirements or suggestions to improve Makespace

This tour is 25min, please be on time. This is for anyone interested in Makespace to come and look around! If you think you'd like to become a member, or perhaps use Makespace for an event then come and see the space, equipment and meet a few members!


Laser training. It's training on the laser. Save yourself from disappointment and social embarrassment by being a fully inducted member with fully working activated tested functional keyfob BEFORE you sign up. (This means if you're being inducted on this day you can't join this training session, sorry). And please only sign up if you can make it. Signing up and then showing up late bumps someone else off a slot - and they're going to be annoyed with you when I tell them (and I will). Don't be late, it wastes everyone's time and counts as a no-show and will also impact on VOLUNTEER willingness to train you in future. Ok, enough warnings .... this stuff is awesome... turn up and be trained on one of our most popular pieces of equipment, learn to build your dreams out of anything on earth (so long as it's wood or acrylic). And I'll make some suggestions on how to run the software you need to get the most out of it. Turn up, pay attention, be laser trained! Awesome! FAQ Q: Can I sign up for this before my keyfob has been activated, working and tested by me? A: No. Q. Can I be late? A: No. Q. I can't make it and I fear your wrath, what can I do? A: Cancel here on meetup so that someone else can have your slot.

Sewing machine training (Fully inducted members - with working keyfobs)

Just the basics of sewing: how to use a sewing machine, and some tips on fabrics and stiches.

Raspberry Pi-makers -- embedded 'puting (open meet)

Makespace classroom

Not just for Raspberry Pi-ers; Arduino and other embedded-type projects also welcome. Whether you're a guru or an interested beginner, you'll be welcome. Bring along a project you're working on, or join in with whatever else is going on. It's a good plan to bring your laptop, if you have one.
