Artist space, creative and messy is ok!
Hosted by Sparkhaus StudioSpacetoCo Host since February 2022
Sparkhaus’ co-founder Leanna dreamed of bringing the makerspace community feel she experienced back in her home state of Arizona, USA to her new home in Newcastle, Australia. Through many ups and downs, they have created a safe working space for anybody to make their creative visions a reality.
About this space
