South London Makerspace is a non-profit social community workshop.

If you want to make something, we’ve got the space. All members have a say in how the space is run and get full access to the space and its facilities.


Our semi-regular newsletter can keep you up to date with important events and announcements. Not spam, but stuff you'll want to know about!


Come on in and introduce ourself on our Discourse forum. Find out what's got us all talking!
