I have been thinking of setting up a (at first online) hackerspace for the north east as i live in Teesside *Coughs* and there seems to be a gap from Leeds to Newcastle.


I`m in hartlepool and would be up for maybe putting together some kind of hackerspace because i believe their is plenty of people around here that are into modding and hacking but they just have no where to meet. i can setup and host a website at no cost to get us started pm me if anyone is interested.

If you can get there, we have a maker space in Newcastle, see:

http://www.makerspace.org.uk/

We have open sessions every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 6.0pm to 8.0pm, then off to the pub :)

I can't see it being a problem, but I'll check on the Maker Spaces discussion group for you

Consensus is there's no problem with junior makers (with adult supervision) coming along to the open sessions. The sessions are pretty un-structured so he might want to bring something along to play with in case he fines it all a bit boring :)
