Ffiws is the name for our 'maker space'!

Ffiws is created in partnership with Menter Môn, Gwynedd Council, Arloesi Glwynedd Wledig, and Cynllyn Arfor. So, you may see the logo in several locations across the region.

This web page is for Ffiws that's located at M-SParc and that's open to M-SParc tenants and members of the Enterprise Hub, and also the Ffiws which goes On Tour with M-SParc, and which is open to all.

Below are examples of the equipment available, and also how some people have made use of them! It's important to use the space in a safe way, and so you can also find Health and Safety information at the bottom of this page. We hope some of these stories will inspire you,


Elen Williams - Gwynedd Creadigol

Elen has been working with dissability services for adults on a pilot project to offer art sessions for adults with learning diffiulties in Gwynedd.

Elen visited Ffiws 'On Tour' at Bethesda to print the participants' designs on to mugs, and burn them into wood on the laser.

These were prototypes in order to make the case to purchase these equipments for the project. The hope is, once the equipment has been purchased, that the participants can sell them in the 'Galwch Acw' shop in Caernarfon.

Martha Loves - Rural Support

The handle of Rachael Jones of Martha Loves' sewing machine had broken!

Rachael is a member of the Enterprise Hub and had been looking everywhere, including America, for a new handle.

Not a problem for Ffiws - with the help of Ffiws technitian, Wyn Griffiths, a new handle was modeled in no time at all and 3D printed for the machine!

Dave Lane - Design Challenge

Dave's wife works at the Piggery Pottery and wanted to create a 'chocolate powder' patternespecially for the coffee at the cafe.

Dave accepted the challenge, designed a stensil, and made it using the 3D printer.

Next time, he'll make it using acrylic and a laser cutter - experimenting is key, and the very reason for Ffiws!
