We welcome anyone who would like to get involved.

Membership of The Making Space costs £10 per month.

Members of The Making Space have rights and responsibilities.

We get fantastic support from our hosts The Media Centre, and without their offer of a space that we could clean up and convert we probably still wouldn't have a home.
