Welcome to the hackspace

Peterborough Hackspace

The HackSpace is a community focused makerspace providing access to specialist tooling & machinery, collaborative workshops, and co-working. The HackSpace wishes to increase opportunities and investment in STEAM industries and activities in the city, whilst providing a social environment to discover new skills and crafts. We are an accessible, inclusive space to create, build and socialise under the commonality of Science and Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics [STEAM]. We provide facilities that are often too specialised and inaccessible to those outside of industry.


Anybody can attend our professionally-led workshops – member or not. Our workshops are hosted by local people, for local people. We pride ourselves on our open-source learning ethos and community spirit. We believe that as a community, we should all involve ourselves in building strong bonds and connections with each other. We should help each other and provide support to those that need it, and we should most definitely provide a space that allows people to work and play in the most satisfying, safe and friendly environment.

What is a makerspace?

A hackspace or makerspace is where people with common interests such as computers, machining, technology, science, digital art, or electronic art, can meet, socialize, and collaborate.
