Becoming a member provides you with 24/7 access* to our machines***, tools and workspace plus inductions, workshops and clubs. As a member you also have a voice in how the space is run and the facilities that are available.
Your membership fee is used to directly fund our mission to provide tools, equipment, resources and facilities which allow us to do even bigger things for our community.
Members are also allowed to hold events, use the space for meetings and even have guests over. Please note that guests must sign liability waivers and may not use tools. For more information, please see the Guests Section of our Rules & Policies.
The cost of Full Membership is currently £40 per month. Full members get 24/7 access* to all the equipment*** and facilities. Some tools and machines will require inductions and training and there will be a nominal one-off fee for some of these.
A Basic Membership is £30 per month and is for members that only plan on using one of the studios or smaller projects maybe a few visits per month. This is, for example, someone that may want to access the sewing room and machines but none of the other areas.
