Located in Ham, Richmond MakerLabs is an all-inclusive space for people with an interest in DIY and craft. The space features computer facilities, electronics lab, laser cutting, 3D printing, CNC machinery, metal lathe, kitchen facilities, informal wood shop, and more.
There is a hobby interest in Internet of Things (IoT), carpentry, biohacking, amateur radio, brewing, gardening, and sewing/knitting too.
RML comprises a community workshop providing tools and facilities for individual projects.
More importantly, it is a space where skills and knowledge are freely shared, and each
individual learns how to accomplish his or her goal by doing, asking and persevering.
It is not a place for formal teaching but rather a place for self-guided learning. Members are always there to help with repairing or constructing if they can.
Additionally, RML undertakes projects to provide technical service of benefit to the local
community. An example of this is a 'Countdown' screen in the local library, showing the
expected times of buses at the bus stops outside.
