A passion for making

We are a community-driven “not for profit” workspace where people with common interests in computing, technology, science, digital art, or electronics, can meet, socialise, collaborate, and learn from each other.


Do you have an idea for a project, or are you interested in learning new skills? Tinkd is the space for you!

Become a member and come to the maker sessions held on the following days:

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 5pm-8pm

A member of the team will take you through each zone and give you a chance to ask any questions relating to the equipment and tools.
