We are Milton Keynes Maker Space (a subgroup of Men in Sheds MK). We meet every Monday and Wednesday evening from 6pm until late at Men in Sheds MK at Kiln Farm, Milton Keynes. We like to make things, chat about stuff and other bits and bobs. We are a friendly and inclusive bunch who are looking to meet new people and gain more members. Come visit us!

Chat with us on slack:
