Mousetrap Innovation is an ideas factory for business or individuals to explore their creativity by learning about and using some of the latest Creative Digital Technologies, whether its for crafts, hobbies, personalisation of gifts or if you are thinking of starting your own business.

Our office in Rayleigh, close to the train station, is a convenient place for anyone in the local area to come to see some of those technologies in action and allow your imagination to take you to places you have only dreamed about.

We run regular experience classes in subjects such as :

Laser cutting, 3D printing, Engraving, lathe work, milling , electronics, coding, Arduino, Raspberry Pi etc, etc.

Don’t be shy, we cater for all age groups and abilities and you never know what you might discover. We also run regular bi-weekly FabLab Essex group meets at Wat Tyler on Sundays where the whole family is welcome.

Whatever your interests I would happy to hear from you so email me on iain  at and lets start making things happen.
