The Sorting

sortingWhen you move house, you get to move all of your stuff too. TOG is no different. You find things that you had long forgotten about. There’s been some pleasant surprises already. Like finding a tenner in an old pair of jeans that have been through the wash.

We moved all of our stuff en-masse to our new space at 22 Blackpitts. We just dropped the stuff anywhere. Now the fun starts. We have to sort through it all, and arrange it into some kind of order. No doubt we’ll do a bit of pruning and tidying as we go. We’re closed while we sort through everything and do some tidying, but we’ll be reopening again very soon. Keep in touch with us to see what we find.

Science Hack Day Badges


We love rockets around here, so when it came to creating this years Science Hack Day badge, we decided a new design was in order. We created a new rocket shape design for science champions to wear . A video of the process is below. If you would like badges created for a community event do get in touch with us laser@tog.ie

Tickets are still available for the upcoming Science Hack Day Dublin on the 14th / 15th of November.

The Move


We have now moved all our equipment to TOG 3.0. At this point we will not closed our doors to the pubic for upto 3 weeks while we build rooms in the new space and get it ready for the public. In the mean time check out this gallery of photos taken during the move and the video of the new space below. Keep an eye on our mailing list for when we are open again.

The End of Chancery Lane

the_endAll good things come to an end, or so the saying goes. And so it is with TOG’s lease on Chancery Lane. It’s time to shut up shop. After 31st October, Chancery Lane will be no more. The place has been good to us. We will have great memories of the last 5+ years there. So we need to give the place a good ‘ol send off. We’ll be having our last open social there on Saturday 17th October from 19:00, and we want to make it a big bash. Come in and cook your last pizza. Drink your last beer and marvel at how much junk we’ve cleaned out of the place.

Check out TOG 3.0

We have a new space all lined up and waiting. We have great plans and we’re very excited. Come along to the social and we’ll tell you more. If you’ve never been to the social, or even TOG itself, you’ll find it a great alternative Saturday evening in town. Look around….talk to members and visitors about projects or things you’d like to do. Talk about beer brewing to some of our brewer members or about locks to our lock pickers. Ask about joining as a full member. If you’ve been promising yourself that you must go to an open social one of these days, then this will be your last chance. There’ll never be another one in Chancery lane…… never, ever, never, never, ever ever again :-)

The space stays open until the last member is left……usually the small hours of Sunday morning. The open social is free to attend for members and visitors alike. Our doors will be open from 7pm.
