The Joy of Technology

Engineering and Technology is our speciality. We solve problems, create solutions and inspire local communities.

We have the tools and expertise to solve your problems, up your skills or deliver creative solutions using rapid prototyping. Our best tools are CAD software, 3D printer, laser cutter and CNC mill. We're experts with computing platforms from Arduino, Raspberry Pi to Windows, Mac, and mobiles. We're not too shabby with electronics either.

We share our joy for tech at regular events in our local community. Our monthly Thanet Technology meetup is at the centre of a growing community of like-minded people. It's always the last Thursday of every week from 7PM and open for anyone to drop in.

Get Inspired


We're always ready to work on projects, especially in our local community. As well as paid jobs, we love to cooperate with other Engineers, share skills with learners and support good causes for local good.

Our location was carefully selected. We are in a small enclave of business units in a leafy area 15 minutes stroll from Margate Train Station. Part of the Old Town we are in Margate's cultural hotspot alongside art galleries, TKE Studios and all the staples of life in our town. 


The founder of The Geekery, Matt Mapleston, has been an Engineer for nearly 30 years.

He can do 3D design, rapid prototyping, systems, software, electronics and more - in short he's a problem solver.

He created The Geekery to help others do the same and willingly shares his skills and experience.

The Geekery is a fully equiped workshop with power and hand tools for most jobs.

The jewels in our toolbox are the table-top 3D Printers, laser cutter, and CNC mill.

We also have a growing library of materials and our 'Wall of Joy' full of various components.

Open Sign


We are the centre of a community of technical experts and enthusiasm waiting for you. Our Thanet Technology Meetup is on the last Thursday of every month.

Alternatively, get in touch directly to get involved.

We've hosted work experience students, employed under-graduates, put volunteers to work on some awesome projects.
