Workshops and Events

While we mainly focus on people bringing their own projects at the Ballarat Hackerspace, we do run workshops from time to time. These workshops cover a wide range of topics, from basic electronics, to 3D printing, to programming, to robotics, and more.

To see what workshops (and other events) are coming up, check out our Events page.

Workshops are scheduled in advance when someone is available to run them and there is enough interest. If you are interested in participating in any of the aforementioned workshops or have an idea of one you would like to see then please register your interest. If you are interested in us running an on-demand workshop, or have some other request, please get in contact with the committee!

Try One Thing - Laser Cut: Festive Bling

Laser Cut: Festive Bling

November 22nd and November 29th, 2023

In partnership with the Ballarat Libraries Technology Hub, we are running two entry-level workshops on laser cutting your own bling, just in time for the festive season!

We're excited to host a free introductory session where you get to design and laser cut your very own ornaments, wearable art, and more! Best part? You get to keep everything you make.

This event is part of the 'Try One Thing' initiative by Ballarat Libraries, aimed at adult learners. The program is designed to fuel creativity and innovation, and help you pick up new skills. Plus, you get free access to our top-notch resources and equipment, and a chance to get acquainted with new and emerging technologies.

Note: Due to limited space and resources, please book for only one session.
