An independent space in Oxford for the hacking needs of our diverse, creative and talented maker community. Thanks to the generous support of The Oxford Trust, we have a lovely new space in the basement of their building, the Oxford Centre for Innovation. that is equipped with numerous tools, wifi, soldering irons, 3d printers, sewing machines, oscilloscopes, hand tools, game consoles, a thriving community, and much more!

The space is open most daytimes and evenings 7 days a week. We also have a more social meetup every Thursday evening, 7pm-11pm, and everyone is welcome to these even if not a member.

Wherever your interest lies, this is a space to do it. You're always welcome to do your own thing or take part in workshops. The more diverse our group, the more stuff you learn. Come introduce yourself to the community on the mailing list! Your ideas and enthusiasm are sure to be met with excitement here.

Our members' interests include crafting, visual arts, programming, electronics, science, 3D printing, and much more. If you're looking for a place in Oxford to work on projects, and people to work with then get in contact. Check out our Mailing List or drop by one of our weekly meetups on Thursday evenings.
