What is Ipswich Makerspace?

Ipswich Makerspace is a Suffolk based group of like-minded makers who get together to learn, build and experiment with a huge variety of technology, modern hardware, traditional craft-works and everything in between. Its a friendly and creative environment to make all the things you ever wanted to.

They are based on Dove Street in Ipswich and have access to a range of different equipment to help cater for the community, including 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machine, and the computers to help drive them. Members who are interested in joining the Makerspace vary in terms of interests from programming, robotics and electronics to woodworking, costumes, models and sculpture to make sure that nobody is left behind.

Their aim is to share knowledge, show off our skills and inspire each other to new heights of inventiveness. There’s never been a better time to be interested in technology due to the amazing array of tiny devices that can be hooked together to do amazing things. In fact, over the last few years a global movement of hackers, makers and fixers have sprung up doing extraordinary things with technology.

How has Coderus helped?

We have a long standing commitment of engaging with the community, Ipswich Makerspace shares the same core values and passion about technology. We worked out a sponsorship agreement together  that enables us to support the Makerspace by getting our staff involved to help individuals better understand technology and what can be achieved.

Coderus has a long-standing commitment to engaging with its community and feels that it shares the same core values and passion about technology as the Ipswich Makerspace. Pillar drills, laser cutters, CNC machine and 3D printers are some of the equipment that the members can use among a wide variety of tools for any type of craft or project. Tech enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to work on either individual or group projects, with free soldering consultation as an option. Each Coderus member will have the opportunity to visit the Makerspace and work on projects, as well as attending the regular meetups and in-house projects.

“From modern hardware to traditional crafts, Ipswich Makerspace fits perfectly the creative projects of them”, said Mark Thomas, Director of Coderus. “It has been really nice seeing some of the team using the laser cutter and the 3D printers for their own projects already. Stephen Chalkley has welcomed us all.”
