Q: Where are you located?

At the Te Atatu Peninsula Digital Makerspace ( 595 Te Atatu Rd). Get directions.

Q: How often do you meet?

We have regular meetings:

  • Every second Monday is where the direction and admin of TAP lab is covered
  • Every Tuesday is an open night for makers – no guarantees of who or what will be worked on
  • Every Wednesday is Hack & Snack night – ideal for beginners and people with projects

For the latest meeting dates and special events, check out our calendar of upcoming events.

Q: Can I join?

YES … unless you are an axe wielding psycho (in which case you’ll have to check your axe at the door).

Q: Can kid come to TAP lab?

Yes, but children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. TAP lab isn’t a child-minding service and there are some tools which are potentially dangerous if misused.

Q: How or what can I contribute?

Time, tools, materials, knowledge, money. 01-1159-0202055-03 is the current ‘cash box’ for donations.

We are looking for people willing to teach or facilitate sessions with a digital/making focus.

Q: Who can come?

We welcome everyone but check each session for any limitations.

Q: Do you have disability access?

The library is a new building and it is fully accessible. We are working on making our space as enabling as possible and we welcome any suggestions on how we can improve!
