Southampton Makerspace

So Make It is a non-profit Makerspace in Southampton, UK - a friendly and inclusive place for people who like making things to sharing knowledge, experience and tools. 

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!
