Solvik Gard Fab Lab


My Actions

Part of the Fab Lab network, a global collection of small-scale workshops containing the tools for personal digital fabrication.

Makerspace [HSGR] is a place for creativity, collaboration, research, development and, of course, education. It is more than just a physical space: It is a dynamic community with ideas inspired by the Open Source philosophy.

The Idea

While our idea stems from free and Open Source ideas, our primary motivation is our desire to share our experiences with the rest of the world.

We want to share our ideas just as we share our code. We are used in sharing our data, problems and solutions remotely from our home or from our jobs. So, why not do it face to face as well?



Be polite to everyone. Respect all people that you meet at the space, as well as the space itself.


The main operation of hackerspace is to promote collaboration by sharing projects, code, and ideas. The motto, which is inspired by Creative Commons, is "I love to share".


All decisions are the result of consensus among members. Decisions on management of the space are taken at the monthly meetings, which are open to all.


You do not need a license to work on a project. If you want to organize an event or a workshop on an Open-Source or Open-Hardware project, do not expect it to be organized by someone else. Take the initiative and do it!


A new, inclusive, shared social and work space for makers, artists, creators, ‘hackers’, crafters, designers, fixers, geeks and nerds from Leigh and the entire surrounding area. "Whatever creative or making thing you do – or want to learn how to do – we can help."
