A makerspace is a place where like minded people can get together and share their interest in science, electronics and all things technological. The aim is to share knowledge, show off our skills and inspire each other to new heights of inventiveness.

We meet every Thursday, and most Saturdays. You can work on personal projects and there's always someone there to help out or impress. We have a programme of talks, show and tell and group discussions. A chance to learn something new like PCB making or hear about the latest tech from someone who's been hands-on with it.

Successes: Our Tractorbot has won prizes at Pi Wars Cambridge three times now. We have since open-sourced this design - details at http://ipswichmakerspace.com/tractorbot-is-open-source/. At Pi Wars 2017, our redesigned TractorBot took second place in the Pros/Veterans category.

We have now moved into a more permanent home above 11 Dove St, Ipswich, IP4 1NG. It is across the street from a truly marvellous pub, the Dove Street Inn, with its dozens of connoiseur beers.
