Hackland - A hakerspace in Auckland

A nest of tech, art, creativity and freedom. Hackland is a makerspace/hakerspace/public workshop situated in Kingsland Auckland.


Hackland is an independent, not for profit Hackspace in central Auckland for Ukelele, Coffee, Ethereum, Bitcoin, 3D Printing, CNC, Woodworking, Metalworking, Electronics, Coding, Sewing, Arts and Crafts or just hanging out with creative people.

Guiding Principles

Change and Experimentation is welcome, even if you're not an expert or not sure where something is going. Everything in the space is hackable unless it has a "Do Not Hack" sticker on it. If it looks expensive or hacking it would take longer than 6 hours to put back, please check with the group or post on the Slack channel or Loomio before taking it to bits.

Big Changes & Group Consensus: if a change is big, talk about it with as many people as possible in person, then ask on slack and post a Loomio proposal to see how the wider-group feels about it. The aim is always to reach a compromise everyone is okay with, but one which is best for the entire group, not one individual.

Safety: there are dangerous tools and equipment in the space. Please have someone show you how to safely use any tool you are unfamilar with before turning them on. Always use the correct safety equipment and always warn other memberes in the space before making loud noises.
