What we're about

This group is for members and visitors to Makespace, a community workshop 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 https://meetup.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

Upcoming events (4+)

Leather Together: Leatherwork Club (MS members)

Makespace (Craft Room)

Whether you're fresh or seasoned in the world of leatherwork, Leather Together is for you! Work on an existing leather project with like-minded leatherers or learn the (leathery) ropes and get some ideas cooking.

Starter materials broadly provided if you're learning, but if you help me work out what the general needs are, I'll be able to fill them more precisely as we go on.

Woodworking evenings

Needs a location

A Makespace evening dedicated to those interested in woodworking, all levels welcomed even if you have never done any woodworking before.

These sessions are aimed at anyone wanting to learn woodworking, exchange knowledge with others or just hang out with other woodworkers.
You are welcome to bring your own woodworking project or alternatively a simple project can be provided like a wooden box or bird house. For the next few weeks a few of the members are planning to build a wooden jewellery box.

It is also possible to ge trained on a large number of the woodworking machines assuming you have completed the online portion and a trainer is present that evening. Just get in touch in advance to ensure a trainer is present that evening and avoid disapointment.

Raspberry Pi, Arduino/Microcontrollers and CAD Club Night

Makespace classroom

Tuesday nights in the Makespace Classroom are Raspberry Pi, Arduino/Micro-controllers and CAD Club meet-ups. Come and join fellow coding and computer aided design enthusiasts for an informal evening of tinkering with tech. Help is on hand to assist you with any problems.
Bring along a project you're working on, or join in with whatever else is going on. We typically have a regular group of Raspberry Pi and Pico experts to help you if you need it. Solidworks CAD help is also on hand.
This is a Makespace community outreach event, so non-members are welcome. Just sign up on the meet-up and ring the 'Pi Club' door bell which will be hanging on the Makespace outside door on the night.
