Makerspace Adelaide Call for Action

Over the last few months, Makerspace Adelaide and its association SA Makers Inc, have gone through a bit of a roller coaster ride, with workshops being cancelled, volunteers having to stay away due to potential contact, and the Adelaide CBD being mostly empty of foot traffic.

The continued impacts of the COVID pandemic have been devastating the city landscape. If you have been following our social media posts, you will know that we are making the difficult decision to find a new location for our beloved space.

We have put out a call for action to help "Save our Space" and to raise funds for that move. We have had some exciting developments about new locations and our goal is to be able to announce further details in the very near future; however,  for right now, we need your help! If you can support the cause please do so via the Chuffed Campaign or help spread the word.

Save Our Space: Fundraiser Event Friday 25th of February

We are holding a fundraising event on Friday 25th of February at 100 Franklin Street Adelaide. It will be a night of fun and making, and a chance to meet the Makers that have kept Makerspace Adelaide going.

Tickets to the evening are $50 and include nibbles, two drinks, and free merch!

We would love to see you there…

Some of the items that are up for Auction at SOS Event

There are beautiful items such as Jewellery, Cutting boards, Scarfs, Phone stands, Artwork, Knitwear, Cosmic Ray Detector (cosmic wind-chime), and much more!

Some of our Volunteers will auction off their skills and services; for example, who would like to have a one on one with someone teaching Picture framing or Vinyl heat transfer designs? How about a giant vortex cannon at your next event or party?

Makerspace Operations Manager

We would like to announce Laura Gransbury has stepped into the Makerspace Operations Manager role, supported by the operation team and board.

Laura brings many skills and leadership qualities to this role, as a passionate maker, repairer and up-cycler. Laura's advocacy and knowledge for sustainability in the textiles industry and the end of fast fashion are second to none. We are very fortunate that Laura had the capacity to take on this role.

We could not operate without the dedicated passion of volunteers and those who help keep the place moving forward. We are grateful to have so many skilled and passionate people ready to step up.

Our goal in moving to new premises is to ensure that we are able to invest in people rather than see all our efforts and revenue go into commercial rent.

People's Choice Community Lottery

Here is another way you can help support Makerspace Adelaide's Fundraising goals: We are one of the community groups listed in this year's People's Choice Community Lottery, which ends soon. Tickets start at $2. Tickets are also offered in groupings of 1, 10, 20, 40, 50 or 100.
Enter and/or share to help support our community of makers.

Makerspace Adelaide Shop

We also have a passionate group of our Volunteer Makers setting up a shop for Makerspace Adelaide. The underlying ethos is that stocked items will be made by makers using reclaimed, reused, and repurposed materials.

As items are created, they will initially be posted on our Instagram and Facebook pages with listed prices; however, we will keep you informed once we settle on additional platforms for access to view or purchase items.
