Farset Labs is a community project for technological people in Northern Ireland; a place for like-minded geeks to come together in our central space, exercise their creative muscles and develop their crazy projects. However niche or specialist your talents Farset Labs offers a hub for everyone and everything. We're also non-profit, and a registered charity, so all the money our generous members and supporters inject goes straight into our rent, our utilities, and shiny new equipment.

If you fancy getting involved in Farset Labs, feel free to visit The Space at any time and see what we have to offer you. We're still building up our equipment and facilities, and the building itself is undergoing constant renovation, so any time you visit, we'll probably be slightly different than before.
We operate on a Membership model for funding instead of charging for use of individual facilities or events. Members of Farset Labs have access to every event and piece of equipment offered. For privately hosted classes etc, members will have free, or for high cost events, highly-subsidised entry.
If you would like to get involved in running the space, or if you have an idea, suggestion, comment or complaint, please do not hesitate to Contact Us. Monthly Town Hall meetings are run to let members talk to management and bring up their suggestions or complaints, in personal or anonymous form.

About Farset Labs
We try to maintain 1000-2200 opening hours but these are by no means guaranteed, due to prior commitments of our members and directors. Any regularly-visiting members will be able to open the space via Weavers Court Security if it is closed when they arrive.
Currently Opening Status is dependant on one of the directors being present to open/close the space
We're looking for talented people to donate some time for the RFID Access project. When it's completed, our members will be able to access the space 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
