The craftspace is, like many areas of the hackspace, a growing area of exploration. This area is looked after and maintained by Team Craft otherwise known as the Crafty Crew - we also run the inductions for the sewing machines, and overlocker.

A picture of the craft area

Craft Area Consumables

These are items that the hackspace classes as consumables, and aims to keep in stock. We have a small budget for this so we encourage donations, and have donation jars around the space.

Consumables are sourced and organised by Team Procurement. If we're out of something on this list, please email or put it up on the Trello Board.

  • board markers
  • tape - duct, masking and sello
  • labels for the label makers
  • Sharpie markers - black, fine tipped
  • Stanley blades
