That's just a short list of the things that will be possible at MAKE Gosport.

What We Need 

We need your help getting set up. For MAKE Gosport, that's mostly about equipment and getting the space set up. 

Our First Target is £12,000,

This will enable us to get all the basic and boring stuff in place like roof repairs, toilets, more electricity capacity and fibre optic broadband etc.

We will also have the following areas set up:

·  Assembly benches – an area where members can use a bench to work on their projects and use hand tools and portable power tools.

·  Woodworking area – an area where people can use the bigger power tools like table saw, drill press, router table, band saw etc. when they need to and then take their pieces back to the assembly benches.

·  CAD area – an area for 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC machines.

·  Metalwork area – an area for welders, chop saws and metal cutting band saws etc.

·  Electronics area – an area for soldering, testing, reworking and microprocessor programming.

The UK Makerspace Project is a local organisation aiming to open MakerSpaces across Hampshire.

MAKE Gosport will be located in Gosport, Hampshire, UK. People from all over the borough and surrounding surrounding towns/citys will have access to our workshops, tools, people and resources. We envision a vibrant community where members become makers, and the students become the teachers. We know that hands-on experience is the best way to learn.

We also know that sharing content, ideas, and workshops online is a great way to teach. That's where MAKE Gosport will be doing a new project each week specifically for YouTube as well as special projects each week for the members only area of the website which will include downloadable plans and resources to help people complete the same projects where ever they are in the world.
