Nottingham Hackspace

Get back to school with Nottingham Hackspace!

Did you know that the Hackspace is a great place for working on science projects, building new things, and generally getting kids interested in making things?

And if you know someone going to university in Nottingham, the Hackspace is also great for using those tools that are difficult to get bookings for on campus, such as the laser cutter, woodworking tools, and finding the perfect quiet spot to do a bit of programming. So why not become a member today?

We're changing the door code!

If you're a member, you should have received an email from the Trustees informing you that the door code will be changing on Wednesday, 9 September.

This covers the wooden door in the stairwell, the door to the blue room, and the door to members' storage.

Please check the email account you have associated with your Hackspace membership, and any spam/junk or promotions folders and tabs you may have in it.

Look for "Hackspace Door Code Change" as the subject line.

If you still can't find the email, please email the trustees at membership@nottinghack.org.uk and they can check your email address and make certain everything is clear.

Let's go Green (Festival)!

We'll be at the Nottingham Green Festival this Sunday from 12-6 at the Arboretum and we need your help!

If you can spare even an hour to help out at the booth, telling people about the work the Hackspace does and showing off some of the cool things members have made, that would be fantastic. We'll be taking the new badge maker and recycling old magazines to make awesome badges!

We'll be meeting at the space at 10 for pulling together all the stuff we'll be taking. Even if you can't make it for 10, show up at the Green Festival and come help out!

Join in the conversation on our Google Group post!

Come help out at the space and join a team!

Everything you see at the space doesn't just appear by magic - we have dedicated members who work hard to make certain that certain areas and tasks are performed.

And now it's your chance to make a change in the space! We're looking for members to join our teams, working with other members to take responsibility for an area or feature of the space, and we need more people helping out!

See the wiki for more info on the teams and Sophie's post on the Google Group to find out more about what's needed.

If you can help out, it'd be an amazing way to make the space even more awesome!

Join us at these events!

We're hitting all the hot spots in September and October, and we'll need you to help us!

If you have great projects to show off, want to tell everyone about how awesome the hackspace is, or could run a workshop, you can do so at the following events:

Sunday, 6 September - Nottingham Green Festival
Saturday & Sunday, 19-20 September - National Space Centre Creator Fair
Saturday, 24 October - Derby Mini Maker Faire

Check the Google Group for more information!

Comics Making Group

Thursday, 10 September, 7pm - 9pm

Do you like to doodle? Make up stories? Read comics? Nottingham Hackspace Comics Making group is monthly session for comics chat and creation! You don't have to be great at drawing or writing to come along, just love comics!

Stitch and Bitch

Tuesday, 15 September, 6pm onwards

Do you knit? Crochet? Weave? Spin? Nålebinding? Embroidery? Kumihimo? Anything to do with stitching? Every third Tuesday, from approximately 6pm onwards, we’ll be in the comfy area getting our stitch on.

Retro Computing Group

Thursday, 17 September, 7pm - 10pm

August saw the group go on a bit of a road trip to visit the Jim Austin computer collection near York. Jim has one of the largest collections of computers in the UK ranging from the smallest micros through minis, and mainframes. He even has a number of supercomputers. They used to be crunching numbers but now they're resting in Jim's shed's and we got to wonder around and take a good look.

Our next regular meeting is on 17th of September. Come along and bring any old computer you fancy or just have a go on one of ours. There is no theme this month, just come as you are.

Don't Forget!

Remember these important dates at your local hackspace!
