Potteries Hackspace

Let's make something!

Tool up!

Hope you’ve all had a nice break over the festive period and are looking forward to the New Year ahead.

As you may know, we’ve moved the Hackspace to the city centre.

We’re now at:

50 Broad St, Hanley, Stoke on Trent, ST1 4EU

We’ve been here for a few months now and are pretty settled in now and we’re raring to go.

That’s the good news.

The bad news is, while we were were moving space, our equipment was in storage at a shared facility.

Much to our dismay, it seems that during this time, many of our tools and much of our equipment have unfortunately gone walkies.

In hindsight we should have been a bit less trusting and a bit more cautious.

So we now find ourselves in a new space with very few tools.

We are a not for profit volunteer organisation and community workshop in the heart of North Staffordshire, currently operating out of Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent.

We need your help

We are looking for people who would be interested to provide what they can for the greater good of the community.

Our space provides access for people to use tools, learn new skills and share their interests.
