It’s been 6 months!

Yes, it’s been half a year since we last posted anything in the website, but in the time we have gone from strength to strength. We now have the new laser engraver working (a diode one) as well as the CO2 laser cutter. Bandsaw, chopsaw/mitre saw, bench grinder, and more, including, yesterday, a new shop…

Starting to look a lot like… Well, not Christmas!

Last Tuesday we had a new possible member along, and we got a lot of organising done. The 3d printer is 90% set up, as is the CNC mill, and the laser cutter is about 25% there, as the extraction problem has been solved with two planks. (Yes, really.) Also the new bandsaw and chopsaw…

Moved! (Excuse the mess)

So, we have now successfully completed the move to our new and slightly secret location. Well, ok, it’s not exactly a secret, but you’ll not find it without a map. It’s just about a mile outside of Bromyard towards Worcester. We no longer have a presence at the old location adjacent C7. If you want…

Welcome to 2017!

Yes, we are back for the new year! (Had we really gone away, since the first meeting was last week? It was just quiet because of holidays, etc.) If you want to come along on Tuesday nights, please do. Not much to say, really – members make stuff, some of it simple, some of it…

First proper Tuesday night session at new premise

Last night was the first full-on Tuesday session at the new Makerspace location, and very good it was too! Several new children and adult future members attended, hopefully. They definitely attended, & hopefully they were impressed & will join! It was really nice to see every one of the kids getting creative with the craft…

Moved!

Historic page! We have relocated. Followers of our Twitter account will know that we have recently left the Heritage Centre, and gotten new premises at Porthouse Business Centre. The new location isn’t really set up yet, so our first meeting, this evening, is to start with that task! For an interactive map to our door:…

Thursday 29th April open night

Last night the Kids┬ámade 5 scribbler robots! The kids had a great time. After that, we completed the fixing of the laser cutter which worked brilliantly on the synthetic mica a member wanted to test cut on. (Yes it is the same photo as last week! The IR laser is invisible to both eyes and…

Yes, an update!

Finally, after a new visitor tonight pointed out the website still referred to last November, I’m updating it! We will likely be changing this so that it feeds directly from Twitter and Facebook, but in the absence of time for working on code, please take a look at the Make:Bromyard group on Facebook or @MakeBromyard…

Flowerdews on the town square – a new project?

The Deputy Mayor has asked if we would be up for a challenge! In 2000, in the town square, there was installed a rather clever clock. With three figures, a woman with a fan to protect her modesty, an artist painting, and a peeping tom, linked to a powered mechanism and with the clock in…
