Portarlington Maker Community

Makeport makerspace is a learning / making / creative community, led by local volunteers based in the Portarlington Enterprise Centre.

Similar to the CoderDojo, it is focused on creating a respectful learning environment, where people can come to share or learn and make use of the resources available in the space.

As we want to make the resource sustainable into the future, some small charges are applied in order to use the equipment. This all goes back into maintaining machines, paying rent and replacing the consumables, and is not used for profit.

If you are interested in joining the community, please get in touch.
