Welcome to Makespace

Makespace is the community’s inventing shed in the heart of Cambridge. It is volunteer run and has the space and equipment needed to learn, build and play. Self-led and community supported, learning is encouraged in our 4,000 sq.ft  of equipment and space. Each year we host hundreds of make-a-thons, talks, and subject specific meet-ups, all with a collaborative spirit. Some are not to be missed, one-off events while others are weekly special interest groups. The equipment available to members ranges from sewing machines to 3D printers, CNC routers and metal lathes. The broad scope of people at Makespace sees great friendships and successful business ventures grow out of our 24/7 accessible space.  The foundation of our community is peer to peer exchange of skills and experience and a hub of business, technology and design expertise. No matter the reason you come to Makespace, there will be like-minded people; try something new, create something different and become part of our extensive network.  

Who is it for ?

Our members join for personal and business reasons and include engineers, designers, artists, educators, hobbyists, DIYers, market traders, entrepreneurs and more. The Makespace equipment and community is invaluable in taking ideas forward.
