What is VHS?
Vancouver Hack Space is the first and longest-running makerspace in Vancouver. It’s operated by a BC registered nonprofit, the Vancouver Hack Space Society. We provide a community workshop where members use 3D printing, woodworking, metalworking, welding, laser cutting, sewing, electronics, and other tools to work on their own projects. We are also a community, where members help and inspire each other to build bigger and better things. VHS is open to the public every Tuesday evening from 7pm-10pm. Membership is only $60/month, and after two months members can apply for keyholder privileges, which includes 24/7 access to the space. Learn how you can become a member.
