Leeds Hackspace is a group aiming to provide Leeds with a permanent not-for-profit hackspace. If you're unsure about what to expect form hackspaces in general, https://hackerspaces.org/wiki/Hackerspaces is a great introduction to them.
Our members come from a range of backgrounds, have differing levels of experience and are interested in everything from woodworking to programming to robots with lasers. The hackspace gives us a shared workshop to develop our skills, collaborate on projects and be more active in our community.
We currently meet on Tuesday evenings in our new space to discuss projects, share ideas and socialise - anyone is welcome to join us.
