Leeds Hackspace is a place for anyone to communally get together, socialise and create with access to space/workshop that has tools that you may otherwise not be able to have hands-on with thanks to the membership, donation and contribution of the hard work of its members and very kind people who aren't.

Since our founding, we've grown from a small group of enthusiasts to our 3rd 2000sqft backspace, which is currently being outfitted for use. We're funded by membership subscriptions and donations.

This means Leeds Hackspace can have excellent tools such as a laser cutter, metal lathe, computer systems, welding kit, various saws, a 3D printer or two, a vinyl cutter and a silly amount of electronics, with some quadcopters thrown in. Some are owned by Leeds Hackspace and bought from membership funds; others are on loan from members and stored at the hackspace for members to use.


  • Every full member gets space to store projects and access them by RFID.
  • Tuesday nights are open nights - anyone is welcome to come along and look around.
