What: Handmade Crafternoon

Next: Wednesday 25th April 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!

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. Each course is hands on, you will be instructed in the correct procedures and then be expected to demonstrate them for the examiner.

Monthly3ʳᵈWednesday

When: 3rd Wednesday of the Month
What: Microcontrollers Monthly
Who: Free and open to everyone
Next: Wednesday 16th May 2018

ATTiny - Uses and Abuses

The ATtiny series of chips are cheap, small, and programmable with the usual Arduino interface. These tiny little 8-pin devices are simple and small enough to embed directly into your wearables or other projects that need simpler interactivity. We cover how to program and use them.

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.

May12Saturday

When: Saturday 12th 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 12th May 2018

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.


Also coming soon:

  • Designing Laser Cut Acrylic project boxes
  • Making Wire Wrapped silver and bead jewellery
  • Make a Wireless Internet Doorbell with ESP8266
  • Learning Useful Tools: The Oscilloscope
  • Bio-hacking: Build your own lab equipment

You can also see a list of past Technical and Social meetings.
