About the Space


Leeds Hackspace is a workshop space for people that like making things, are curious about how stuff works, or would like to learn new skills.

Membership is open to all and we are a not-for-profit organisation entirely run by its community.

We are interested in technology (both new and old) but are also a social group of people who enjoy talking and bouncing ideas/questions off of one another.

Everyone is welcome (and encouraged) to have a wiki account. Please ask in IRC/Slack or email the directors.
