Monthly2 & 4Wednesday

When: 2nd and 4th Wednesday Every Month. 7pm on
What: Handmade Crafternoon
Who: Free and open to non-members
Next: Wed 14th June 2017

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!

When: Saturday 1st July 2017 - 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.
