About[edit]

We’ve founded Teesside Hackspace Ltd to provide a hackspace for people in Middlesbrough and the surrounding area. A hackspace (a.k.a hackerspace, makerspace, hacklab) is a community run workshop where people can come to build things and collaborate on projects with like-minded people. We currently have a space within the Victoria Building at Teesside University, which we’ll be gradually kitting out with tools and resources. We’re a not-for-profit community run organisation, so our monthly income will be used to cover the costs of running the space, and pay for new equipment. If you’re interested in using Teesside Hackspace, we encourage you to become a member and pay what you feel the space is worth to you.

Joining[edit]

To become a member of Teesside Hackspace and gain access to our shared space visit the member section of our website and sign up. Membership can be paid monthly or annually by Direct Debit. We ask that you pay what you think the space will be worth to you. Please be as generous as you can, the more money we raise through membership, the better the space we get can be. The space will require our members to contribute an average subscription of £15/month to survive. For students, retirees or low income members the minimum subscription is £5/month.
