Halifax Makerspace

Get excited and make things!


#FF0000 Raised $450 towards the $5,000 target.
#FF0000 Raised 8 towards the 25 target.

Halifax Makerspace is working towards finding a new home! Back at our Annual General Meeting we set some targets that we need to reach to get us into a space that suits our needs. The targets on this page will allow us to get into a space big enough and with the requirements we need to make the things we want. Big projects, small projects, messy projects, clean projects, projects you can finish in a night, projects that a team works on for over a year. Once these targets are hit we will be ready to sign a lease. We need your commitment to move towards these goals. By committing to becoming a member you will increase the thermometer on the right. We are also looking for extra donations to help increase the thermometer on the left. If you want to make a personal donation that is great. If you know of companies who might want to sponsor us or government grants that is even better.

Ready to commit?

Making Ornaments with the Central Library

On December 10 we were invited by the Central Library to present a craft for a special all-ages Crafting with Tech session.  We had planned on offering a craft involving soldering, but found out with a few days to go that the smoke alarms are too sensitive.  We had an emergency meeting and re-vamped the craft […]
