We’ve launched a full hackerspace!
The Concoctory started out as a retail and workshop space in March 2013. In October we expanded that idea in to a non-profit, community run hackerspace for the SoBo neighborhood. We’re looking for people to get involved, so please come meet the crew any Monday evening after 7pm for weekly planning/hack night.
Wait. What does that mean?
Hackerspaces are places where people from different backgrounds and skill sets can come together to socialize, learn, teach, collaborate and work on their projects. “Hacker” isn’t the dirty word you might think. We also call ourselves Tinkerers, Makers & Artists around here. DIY is our driving ethic and any and all skill levels are welcome!
Don’t worry, we aren’t taking anything away. The Creativity Shoppe will continue selling kits and goodies to hack on and we’ll keep offering our pay-what-you-can workshops to the public.
Starting October 1st, and over the coming months, we’ll be adding memberships, more services, and equipment to better serve our creative community.
