Announcing Nottingham Hackspace 2.0

Last week we were told that we’d need to leave the Old Police Station by the end of April. Since then we’ve been working with The Art Organisation to arrange new accommodation for Nottingham Hackspace.

Yesterday we were pleased to make a new arrangement with The Art Organisation to move in to the basement level of the Hopkinson Gallery also on Station Street.

We’ve got some early pictures of the basement (remember it needs work) here on Dominic’s Flickr.

On the Open Hack Night 6th April 2011 (tonight) there will be a chance for you to look round the basement at The Art Org. We hope to bring you a schedule for the work that needs to be completed and details of the dates of the move.

We will be having a Hackspace warming party and official Nottingham Hackspace 2.0 opening on a Sunday in May (watch this space for more information).

Over the next month we’ll still be looking for new members and organising some workshops. We are currently planning a “Hackspace Wearables” workshop to include how to do “on the cheap” screen printing, working with EL Wire and Lillypad Arduino also a chainmail workshop and Atari-Punk-Console workshop…

So a lot happening. We can’t wait to see you at the new Nottingham Hackspace soon!

    That looks AWESOME! Love the cast-iron columns and the loom!

    I suggest you have an opening party and ask everyone to bring a tin of paint or something to hack the space itself. You’ll have it looking awesome in no time at all!

    (Yes, of course we’ll come and help)
