What is a MakerSpace/HackerSpace?
A 'makerspace' (or 'hackerspace') is a shared workshop for working in many different disciplines - the idea is to learn new skills from the people you're working around and to work together on projects you might not be able to do by yourself - spaces are often shared by groups who do things like: electronics, craft, art, programming, engineering, cooking.
A comprehensive list of worldwide makerspaces is available here.
Existing New Zealand makerspaces:
Auckland Hackerspace (Auckland)
The Clay Store (Auckland)
ProjectSpace (Palmerston North)
there is also a nationwide "Bloke's Sheds" movement that generally caters to retired men - there are two in Dunedin
