WORKSPACE

 Booking Space...

Space can be booked in multiples;

 

Book for 5 days and pay for 4

Book for 7 days and pay for 6

Monthly rates are available - the more you use it, the more affordable it is. Which is nice.

We recommend booking in advance, members can book online through the members' area

What's included...?

The price of a workshop includes access to the communal fabric, wood, metal and welding machines and to the hand tools and power tools.

And materials...?

We can order in sheet material or lengths of timber at competitive rates from our suppliers. If you're after something more specialist, we recommend you source it and have it delivered here in time for your booking. We just ask that you give us a heads up of the delivery.

 

Consumables from our timber stock, metal stock, welding gas, paint and textiles are added onto your bill at the end of your session.

Do you need a hand with that...?​

The hire fee assumes one person per workspace, there is a supplement for additional workers. If your assistant is a member they can use the EOW machinery, if not, it's hand on only...unless they sign up on the spot of course..!
