Do you want to come and try-out our makerspace in Darling Square Library with other young people? Join this monthly free 3-hour session to get hands-on experience with 3D printers, laser and die cutters, electronic kits and hand tools including soldering irons.

Bring a simple idea or project you’d like to explore, or we’ll set you up with a starter project kit. You could learn how to make a simple robot, build squishy circuits or create your own stopwatch or water sensor. These small-scale starter kits come with easy to follow how-to guides.

Each week, 2 experienced facilitators will be on hand to show you the ropes and discuss your ideas. You’ll also be to share ideas and learnings with other participants and explore free online resources

Bookings and class size: Maximum 12 people. You don’t need to come every week, just book in for the sessions you’re keen to join
