What is SoMakeIt?

SoMakeIt is a Southampton based community space and workshop for makers, developers, tinkerers and artists!

Wikipedia states:

A hackerspace (also referred to as a hacklab, makerspace, or hackspace) is a community-operated workspace where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital art or electronic art, can meet, socialise and/or collaborate.

The Makerspace is a great venue for peer-to-peer learning and sharing of knowledge. A lot of what goes on in the Makerspace involves Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM).

Is SoMakeIt for me?

Are you enthusiastic about making things? Then yes.

We’re a community workspace catering to a broad demographic; we have tools for people of all ages and backgrounds, 18 and over, to come together and create: costumes, woodwork, electronics, props, technology, metal work, 3D printing, sculptures, PCBs, even group endeavours such as our dalek.

All are welcome to visit any time we are open, Tuesdays being our busiest evening (great for introductions) and Friday mornings are particularly suitable for those no longer constrained by work.

We are a collaborative group who share tools, techniques and time; pool resources for bigger projects, get funding, discounts on kits and components and start classes, all in a safe friendly environment!

What is HMS?

HMS (Hackspace Management System) is a program designed to help keep track of members, it's a bit basic at the moment, but we have big plans for it. It's current main goal is to make new member registration easier.
