About the Vancouver Hack Space


The Vancouver Hack Space (VHS) provides a physical space where people can gather to share ideas, equipment, opinions, and beer. Members work on personal projects, collaborate with others, and learn new skills. More than just a studio space, we focus on sharing all sorts of knowledge within a friendly and collaborative atmosphere. VHS is the community garage for a community without garages.

Many of our members share an interest in 3D printers, laser cutting, machining, crafting, costuming and cosplay, prop making, electronics, robotics, programming, wood working, and art. We welcome anyone with skills to share or an interest in learning, and strive to be as open as possible in everything we do.

Like many other hackspaces at the Vancouver Hack Space we operate on a model of do-ocracy. Check out our Code of Conduct and VHS Principles of Unity for how we expect members and visitors to the space to behave.

Become Involved


We are located at 1601 Venables St in Vancouver, 2 blocks West of Commercial Drive at Woodlands Dr. Access to the space is from Woodlands Dr. Someone will let you in, if we're open.


VHS Talk (forum/mailing list) - the easiest way to keep up to date on upcoming events. This can be made to function like either a web forum or a mailing list, your choice.

Slack - Slack is somewhat similar to IRC, and has replaced our IRC channel as our official member-chat medium. Unfortunately you need to be invited by one of the current admins to get access to it - that's's requirement, not ours. Information on how to do that can be found on the VHS Talk forum.
