We Finally Have a Makerspace!

I am extremely happy to announce that we finally have a permanent place to meet. Towards the end of last year Knox City Council thought a maker space would be a great addition to the Knox area. They held a Workshop at Siemens in Bayswater. At that meeting Knox City Council learned of MESH.

Knox City Council wanted a maker space in Knox, we needed a space, but where would it be located? We suggested asking Swinburne. Luckily Swinburne University had underutilised space and were also interested in having a makerspace on campus. Knox City Council Formally asked Swinburne if they would be willing to host a makerspace for MESH at their Wantirna campus – and Swinburne said yes.

Our makerspace will open on March 19 2016, but we still have a lot of work to do before it will be a fully operational.

I wish to thank both Swinburne and Knox City Council for giving MESH this fantastic opportunity. We have a long list of people that deserve our thanks, you know who you are 🙂

The makerspace is located at the Wantirna campus of Swinburne University, 369 Stud Rd – WJ building.
