Who we are

Founded in May 2015, Maidstone Hackspace is a collaborative workspace where people with a shared interest in making, building, and tinkering can come together to create and innovate. Our space provides access to a wide range of tools, equipment, and resources, such as 3D printers, laser cutters, electronics, and woodworking tools, which can be used to bring ideas to life. Our members are typically passionate about DIY culture, technology, and innovation, and often work on projects that range from personal hobbies to entrepreneurial ventures. We are inclusive and encourage learning and skill-sharing, making us an ideal environment for individuals looking to expand their knowledge and creativity.

What we do

Maidstone Hackspace is a collaborative workspace that promotes learning, skill development, and responsible use of technology. Our hands-on environment and resources help turn your ideas into reality, from software development to art exploration.

At Maidstone Hackspace, we offer a range of collaborative projects that bring together like-minded individuals and promote skill-building in a fun and engaging way. Our current projects include the Electromagnetic Field Camp, where we work on electronics, radio, and programming projects in a festival environment. We also have Electronic Go-Kart racing with our Hacky Racers project, where we design and build an electric-powered go-kart to race against other competitors. And, for those interested in robotics, we have PiWars at Cambridge University, where we design and build Raspberry Pi-controlled robots to compete against teams from around the country. These projects to name a few, offer opportunities for learning, creativity, and community-building, and we welcome anyone interested in participating.

We also focus on community-driven, energy, and nature-based projects that foster stronger connections across communities and benefit the environment, society, and cost of living. We strive to enhance the health and well-being of people and communities in the UK through our collaborative efforts. Join us in making a positive impact on the world.

If you have a project in mind that aligns with our values, we would love to hear from you and explore how we can work together to make a positive impact.
