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
