Our Communities

South London Makerspace is a social community workshop in the heart of Herne Hill. It’s owned, run and maintained by the members; there are no paid staff so everything is done on a volunteer basis. While we cater for a wide range of activities, we have several specalist areas equiped and ready to use including but not limited too...


If you would like to enjoy the peace that comes with learning and using traditional skills, then our fully equiped woodwork and carpentry workshop will inspire you to build a new hobby into a life long passion.


Whether you're a total beginner or seasoned pro, we have two fully equiped Electronics benches available all the time and we have a Thursday Evening Meet up with our Electro Techs to share ideas and get help


If you like to make things, run metal working machines, or just talk about tools, this is your place. We have a range of metal work equipment from a full size lathe to industrial MIG welder. Metal Techs are available at certain time to talk you though your projects and safe use of the equipment


Join us to complete the projects you began in our sewing workshops, or just work on your own sewing projects in the company of others! We provide access to sewing machines, a serger, basic sewing tools, and scrap fabrics.
