Coventry Makerspace is a membership-run organisation that provides people in Coventry the tools – and space – needed to complete projects. You can learn a new skill, try out that tool you’ve always wanted, or just socialise with like-minded makers. Our aim is simple:
To provide a safe, fun and encouraging environment where all members, both skilled and unskilled, can work together to enhance existing or build new skills. In a fully equipped state of the art citizen run facility, tools and machines can be used a low cost to complete projects that may not be possible in your own garage or workshop.
Both informal groups and structured classes are available to members, including electronics and arduino. We value STEM education and family involvement, and on Saturday mornings we run MakerKids craft activities and Tech4Kids where children learn about technology and coding.
Hand tools, woodworking equipment, electronics tools and computers are all freely available to members to use whenever they choose. In addition, members can get subsidised training and access to cutting edge tools such as laser cutters, CNC machines and 3D printers.
Coventry Makerspace CIC is a community interest company. It is entirely non-profit, run by volunteers (so no salaries) and all tools and equipment are asset-locked. This means that every single penny paid to the Makerspace stays within the Makerspace, to do good for its members and the wider community. If you would like to donate or support Coventry Makerspace we will happily meet with your and share how the organisation runs and provide a break down of our accounts and membership.
