Build Brighton Hackspace is a 1300sqft communal workshop and collective of like minded people who love to build stuff with electronics, crafts, engineering and technology. The main purpose of the hackspace is to provide a space and tools with which our members can gather, beaver away on their own projects and take part in exciting group projects, in an playful and friendly environment.
We also promote maker-culture whenever possible, doing workshops at various festivals like White Night and Coastal Currents, and even organising our own events, like the huge Brighton Mini Maker Faire.
Our workshop is at Rodhus (back entrance), Freehold Terrace, Brighton, BN2 4AB. We have open days every Thursday from 7pm: here are some directions on how to find us. Members can use the space whenever it is open, which if you are a trusted member and keyholder is 24×7.
We are a not-for-profit community, run entirely by volunteers, and all subscriptions go towards paying for the space and providing equipment, amenities and assets for the group. Alongside helping pay the rent, benefits of membership include:
