Hack Hitchin

Welcome to Hitchin Hackspace

Hitchin Hackspace is a community organisation devoted to providing everyone with a place to explore all kinds of creative technologies and crafts.

UPDATE 21st September 2021: Coronavirus / COVID-19 and Hitchin Hackspace.
Please read our announcement of Hitchin Hackspace’s Policy on Coronavirus /Covid-19

If you’re not used to it, don’t be put off by the word Hack – as far as we’re concerned, Hacking is creating, improving, solving problems and learning new, (often pointless, occasionally quite useful, always fun) skills. This sort of hacking doesn’t involve stealing Pentagon secrets (Matthew Broderick has a lot to answer for!), or stealing credit card details.

So far, we’ve done fun stuff like building bat detectors, Lego vehicles you drive with your iPad, a 3 foot balancing robot and our finest creation bighak.

So that’s us – if you’re interested in getting involved with any of the projects that we’ve got on, if you’ve got an idea for a killer project that you’d like to share, or even if you want to come along and try your hand at something new, why not get in touch.

In pre-COVID times we would meet:

Unfortunately, at the moment, we have had to suspend our open evenings and social evenings, We hope to be able to restart them in the not too distant future.

If you are interested in getting involved or finding out more about the space then please do

and we can arrange a visit to the space to show you round.

Make. Craft. Invent. Learn.

We also have a Slack channel which is available to members.

And check out our wiki where we keep a lot of information about the Hackspace.
