South London Makerspace is a member-owned workshop, run and maintained by the members.

Membership has the following benefits and responsibilities:

Please note that some tools require an induction session before you are cleared to use them.

We ask members to pay what they think membership is worth to them, however we have set a minimum of £20 per month. This minimum can be lowered if you are out of work or on a low income. Please email the directors to enquire about this. We want Makerspace to be available to everybody.

To keep costs down we use Direct Debit to collect your monthly membership fee. However this can take a few days to process after setting it up. Once your first payment has cleared, you can get a tag that lets you touch in at the front door. You’ll also gain access to the members only areas of the forum.

After you’ve been a member for a while and gotten to know other members, you can get two other key holders to vouch for you, allowing your tag to also open the shutter and giving you independent access to the space.

You must be over 18 and have a UK bank account (under-18s are welcome in the space but must be accompanied by their parent or guardian at all times).
