Welcome to Telford Makerspace

Located at 2 Park Street, Wellington TF1 3AE, we're busy renovating the space, and will be officially opening in early September, but there is a LOT of work to do! We have now moved our kit out of the old place, and are starting work on the floors - if you're able to help out with this, please let us know. Keep an eye out for announcements here and on our social media - we will be posting about progress as it occurs.

Our CrowdFunder campaign was SUCCESSFUL!

It's been an amazing and sometimes nail-biting ride, but we did it! Without all of your support, this wouldn't have been possible - thanks so much to everyone who donated or pledged. This enables us to secure our future so we can grow and make good on all our ambitions - we have so many ideas, and we want your input to drive it forward. Please get in touch via any method listed on our Contact us page!

We will now start working through delivering those rewards - if your reward requires additional details for us to complete, we will be in touch via CrowdFunder messaging, so please keep an eye out for communications via the email address you used when you pledged. Also, please check back here for details on progress!

About Telford Makerspace

Telford Makerspace is a community run group with a small membership fee, aimed at makers, tinkerers, fixers and artists. The aim is to help each other on a variety of technology projects. There are various tools and equipment available for everybody to use, and there are more being added all the time. You don't have to have any particular skills or experience to join us - just enthusiasm and a willingness to join in and give it a go.

We will be back to having regular meetings once we have the one or two rooms ready to a basic standard. Previously, we used to have regular sessions on on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 7 to 10pm, and also most Saturdays from 10am to 4pm, and we are aiming to start running these sessions again as soon as we can.

Please see our "Join" page in the menu above to register for membership.
