TechShop is a global network of open-access creativity hubs bringing together the hardware, software and people you might need to turn an idea or invention into reality. Part fabrication and prototyping studio, part hackerspace and part learning centre, TechShop typically provides access to more than $1 million worth of professional equipment and software.
A TechShop in Lower Hutt?
Council has been unable to secure the support required to bring a TechShop makerspace to the region following an exhaustive market assessment completed in August 2017. The financial support of key partners is critical to funding a TechShop as has been illustrated in North America, where all USA based TechShop’s ceased trading on September 15, 2017 due to the retail business model they were operating. Whereas TechShop Global spaces are unaffected due to the partnership models in place.
Thank you to all those who contributed to the market assessment and supported the project over the last 2 years.
