What is a Hackerspace?

Wikipedia: "A hackerspace (also referred to as a hacklab, makerspace, or hackspace) is a community-operated workspace where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital art or electronic art, can meet, socialise and/or collaborate.".

Here at Xerocraft, we expand this to include interests that encompass a wide variety of hobbies and arts, as well as technology and the sciences; often in conjunction.

Who are we?

We are a collection of scientists, engineers, tradesmen, artists, or any other hobby enthusiast, but we almost all share one thing in common: curiosity.
We come together to learn from each other all manner of skills and ideas to use towards our own personal hobbies, or community projects.

What do we do?

We collaborate, hypothesize, learn, teach, create, and socialise. We attempt to hold frequent workshops teaching anything from basic arduino programming, to how to extract DNA, to how to use a welder or 3D-printer, to how to build a coffee table. We are always open to suggestions for workshops, and don't mind helping total strangers with answering questions, or showing how to use an unfamiliar piece of equipment.

Where are we?

101 W 6th St, Suite 101
Tucson, AZ

How do I get involved?

All you need to do is participate in whatever capacity you want. You can join our website and participate on our online forum, or you can join our mailing list and be a part of our conversations and volunteer opportunities, or you can show up during any of the open hours (shown below) and say hello. Do not be worried about being turned away, non-members are more than welcome to use our tools and join our workshops. Membership is $50 a month.

If you ever feel like you have a skill others may want to learn, then please consider running a workshop. Send us an email letting us know what it is you can do, and when you're available; The greater the diversity of what we can teach, the more we're doing our part to improve our local community!

Open Hours

  • Tuesday WTF only: 6:00pm - 10:00pm
  • Thursday: 7:00pm - 10:00pm
  • Saturday: 12:00pm - 4:00pm

WTF Nights

Every Tuesday is an open hack night exclusively for Women/Trans/Femme hackers, artists and makers (hence the name, WTF).

Similar to the Bicas WTF nights, we will be open to all women, transfolks, genderqueer folk, femmes, and other people who’ve had gender bias, homophobia, or transphobia keep them away from tools and workshops.

Every WTF Night we do some organized things: Welding, Meet the Machine, and a Group Project. There are also people who show up to do their own projects, which is great.
