Events Lock Picking Workshops

An introduction to lock-picking

After the success of the last event & interest from members & non-members who couldn’t make it, We’ve decided to run 2 more sessions to introduce people to the techniques of picking locks & lock-sport as a hobby.

The two sessions will run on Monday 17th January from 6-9pm and Saturday the 22nd of January from 12-3pm, to allow people who can’t make events on a “school night” or on a weekend to attend.

Both sessions will be open to all, including those who have attended previous sessions. Spaces are limited to 15 people for each event. So register now!

Make Stuff at Hackspace It’s FREE!

Hackers are people who have very few things in common except … they want to make stuff……. share knowledge and learn new skills… it’s more than electronics and robotics we dabble in art, shed-chemistry, backyard ballistics, programming, woodwork, kite flying, engineering, knitting, homebrewing, problem solving, prototyping…

Hacking is about taking control of the things in your life and knowing how to make them work for you, from fixing your bike to jail breaking your iPhone.
