The Geekery is a co-working and community space in Margate. We aim to Connect<> with others, Spark** new ideas and Develop++ skills. We are the ideal home for Tech Gurus looking for a workspace at the centre of a vibrant tech community in a beautiful and healthy location.
Our workspace has 4 desks for hire with access to resources including 3D printing, laser cutting and CNC milling. These machines can be used to create or copy almost any object you can imagine by building up or cutting out materials with sub-millimetre precision. We also have a library full of kit and components useful for many maker projects. A very well-equipped rapid prototyping factory with expertise at hand.
We have regular events for networking and spreading the joy of tech in our local community. Our monthly Thanet Technology meetup is our community of like-minded people that connect through a shared interest in creative use of technology. The aims of the community, beyond making connections, are to spark ideas and to develop projects and skills. We encourage volunteering, provide tech workshops and support education.
