A non-profit Makerspace in Southampton, UK - a friendly and inclusive place for people who like making things and sharing knowledge

Southampton, UK
Similar projects worth following

The interests of the current membership focus on subjects of wood- and metal-work, costume design, photography and of course technology (3D printing, microcontrollers (Arduino, etc), robotics, home automation, computers (Raspberry Pi, etc) and programming). We have a significant number of tools available to facilitate these activities and our members are often willing to lend their own personal tools too.

Membership is not required to use the space, please just pop in during our Opening Hours and see what we're about; hopefully you might consider joining us on our journey to bring maker-culture to everyone!

We're Unit F in Liners' Industrial Estate. We have two large workshops, One for wood and metal work and another for cleaner activities such as electronics, sculpting or bakeing. We welcome any artists, engineers, programmers, hackers, makers, tinkerers or anyone creative to come join us. If you run a group, or are planning to start one, why not get in touch or visit us to see what we can offer?

We're always on the look-out for new members and groups to join our fold, so do get in touch– we think you'll be glad you did! Membership includes many benefits including access to the space and it's tools, storage and resources; the right to vote on the direction of the organisation; and of course becoming a member of our community!

    Join us on Saturday 17th Jan for the Grand Opening of our 3rd Space!

    We've moved again – to a much larger and friendlier space! We've been busy over the past two months cleaning it up, repainting it and kitting it out with everything you've come to expect from Southampton Makerspace – plus a social area with sofas, a large open area, and fully functional kitchen!

    • a chance to explore the new space
    • workshops:
      • soldering (14+)
      • conductive play-dough (5+, including adults!)
      • cake and doughnut decorating
    • view our members showcase, including:
      • 3D Printed Alien Xenomorph suit
      • 3D Printed R2-D2
      • 3D printed Back to the Future Mr Fusion
    • watch and discuss various making activities, such as:
      • building a chair from recycled wood
      • knitting
      • 3D printing
      • quadcopters
