  2. Hi,
    It been awhile since I attended the last forum at Sheffield Hallam University therefore as my interests are more likely into digital technologies and hacking, I would like to participate and join the SHHM team to gather more information , build networking and bring upfront my skills and also share my experiences with others.

    • Yes indeed, check out the google calendar on our home page and pick an open session that suits you. The best ones to attract a lot of members at the same time are Mondays.

      Look forward to seeing you.

  3. I’m a retired Mathematician and Session Blues Guitarist who lives in Sheffield.
    For some time I’ve been collecting vintage programmable calculators, attempting to do minor repairs but mainly programming them.
    I’m not very practical and this is holding me back electronics wise – I’m also trying to bring back to life both a Vintage Commodore Vic 20 and my 1982 Sinclair ZX Spectrum.
    I’ve tried to do online electronics course but I really need to be in a class with others – your setup looks ideal.
    Can I come to your next club meeting\day please?

  4. Hi,

    I’d love to join but I’m afraid I have limited funds, due to disability.

    Even £6 on the door for someone who’s struggling to pay to eat and heat seems rather excessive, especially if you aren’t using any tools or equipment at first.

    Then minimum donation £21 per month or £250 per annum! I could purchase the latest 3D printer for a couple of hundred more.

    cheers

    • Hi Pete thank you for your message. my name is Craig and i am one of the new Trustees for the hackspace I am not sure if you have already been down to the space and spoken to someone or you have been mailed costing information but i think you may have been given some duff information.

      we charge £6 for one months meetings Essentially the price equates to £1 per meeting as we meet 6 (sometimes 7) times a month and there no obligation for you to pay any more than this just pay £6 and turn up to as many of the meetings as you can, if after a month you find you have no more need for the space then by all means stop paying and hold on till you feel you would like to return, we accept cash on your first real visit but your first visit to the space to look round is free.

      I understand even the above costs can be a challenge for some peoples situations however please be assured ALL the money taken goes into running the space (heating lighting rent etc and no-one gets paid or profits from this).

      Hopefully these costs are clearer now but if not please reach out for more information, we would love you to see the benefits joining our group

      Kind Regards
      Craig
