Hot desk space in creative Makerspace

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.
