Monthly2 & 4Wednesday

When: 2nd and 4th Wednesday Every Month. 7pm on
What: Handmade Crafternoon
Who: Free and open to non-members
Next: Wednesday 28th February 2018

If you are interested in learning to knit, crochet, or sew, or if you already know how to do it and you would like to meet other people and craft socially come on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month to Swansea Hackspace!

The idea is to create a friendly and inclusive place for everyone interested in crafts to nurture their creativity! we hope that with enough interest we can organize yarn-bombing activities around the city!

You can buy fairly cheap material from Swansea Market to start with, and we have a small selection of material in stock on the day if you if you don't have any yourself. If you are looking to learn try to choose bright coloured thick yarn (acrylic is perfect to learn on) and large knitting needles or crochet hooks! If you are already a knitter or a crocheter bring your project with you for everyone to admire and get inspired!

May5Saturday

When: Saturday 5th May 2018 - Midday onwards...
What: Hack the Space!
Who: anyone that wants to help out or get involved

Our quarterly event where we take a Saturday afternoon out to have a general tidy up, sort through the accumulated junk at the space, make improvements and reorganise stuff. We take this opportunity to examine current stock and equipment levels, make purchasing plans, and discuss ideas for projects and improvements. This is a great way to get involved and influence what the space has to offer. Some lunch will be provided.

Agenda for Saturday 5th May 2018

Monthly3ʳᵈWednesday

When: 3rd Wednesday of the Month
What: Microcontrollers Monthly
Who: Free and open to everyone
Next: Wed 21st March

Arduino: What is it? What does it look like? What can it do for me?

In our first of what will be a regular monthly event we take a look at the Arduino platform and some of the many devices which work with it. What they look like, how much they cost, how to get started with the software and a discussion on some of the ways you can use them to power and enable your projects. If you have a laptop you can also have a go at some simple tutorials.

This will be a regular monthly evening focusing on microcontrollers and basic electronics and how to use them. Each session will feature a short tutorial or example that demonstrates how you can use Arduino and related technologies to add interactivity to your projects. These sessions will also be the ideal forum to bring your own projects and questions along if you would like any advice or help.

MonthlyTBAWeekday

When: Coming Soon to a Weekday Evening
What: Monthly Induction Courses
Who: Members

This monthly session will feature a cycling set of induction courses on the various tools and equipment available in the space. Each course will familiarise you with the correct procedures for using a given piece of equipment, and qualifies you to use it without supervision.

There is likely to be a cover charge for these courses to cover the tool usage fees and materials consumed during the course, a full list of dates and fees will be published shortly.

What: Saturday Open Hack Day

One Saturday a month we will throw the doors open for an Open hack night, where members and non-members alike can bring their projects to work on, ask questions and get help from the regulars, or just hang out and socialise.

Your Event?Soon

What: Whatever you want to see happen
When: Pick a Date and let us know
Who: Could be free to everyone, or have a cover charge for materials

This is your hackspace. Whilst the directors have to take care of the paperwork and legal aspects of running the hackspace, they are volunteers and members just like you, and don't always have the time to put on workshops of their own, but you don't need to be a director to run a workshop or other event, you don't even need to be an "expert" at anything.

If you have any kind of skill or craft that you are enthusiastic about, maybe something you just got started on, or something you wanted to try out but never found the time. Pretty much anything that you want to share with the world, or that would be more interesting if done as a group, can become a workshop of some kind.

If you have such an idea then please share it, simply pick a date from the calendar that isn't already in use, and let the dirctors know. This can be a one off, or a recurring event, choice is yours. We will take care of listing and advertising it for you, we can also take care of obtaining any materials you need if you let us know in advance.

That's all there is to it, no costs, no forms, just pick a date and do it!


We welcome anyone that would like to run a workshop, or add Suggestions you would like to see.

  • Designing Laser Cut Acrylic project boxes
