About Us

TOG is a hackerspace based in the centre of Dublin. It is a shared space where members have a place to be creative and work on their projects in an environment that is both inspiring and supportive of both new and old technologies. In the past 8 years we have worked on everything from giant LEDs to Raspberry Pis, we have made a twitter knitter and a pizza oven.

Contest!

The prizes are a personalized laser cut pencil and a surprise from our 3D printer. Entering is really easy. Simply Retweet this tweet or Share this Facebook post. 5 winners will be pseudorandomly picked from Twitter and 5 from Facebook, on Saturday the 28th, prizes can be picked up in the space.

Update:   To enter the Facebook competition you will also need to leave a comment on the post.

It’s back! TOG Craft Night

Well, we just about moved the last of the cobwebs off the sewing machines and preserved them for later… projects. The good news is that means we are now ready to start Craft Nights again!  Craft Night is starting on Wednesday, the 5th of October from 7pm.

Craft night is a night where any form of craft is welcome, from textile crafts, to paper crafts, to anything else you care for. Specifically on the agenda is Drawing, Painting, Knitting, Sewing, Embroidery, and that’s just the ones we know for sure. Whether you’re into making shoes, making jewellery, making candles, making bags, making clothes, the night is open to anyone who wants to make something. Bring whatever you are working on and share your knowledge or get help. Halloween is coming, maybe you can make some spooky decorations or costumes?
