Membership of Build Brighton is on a pay-what-you-can basis. The average monthly subscription is around £25, but all we ask is that you pay a subscription each month, and that you pay what the makerspace is worth to you. Please come along to an open evening before joining, to make sure the place meets your needs.

Benefits of membership include:

24/7 access to our 1300 square-foot workshop (once you become a trusted member and subject to the entry system working etc), access to our equipment, priority access to our workshops and events, bulk rates at our parts suppliers when we place group-orders, a say in how the makerspace is run

When I first joined Build Brighton I felt completely out of my depth, but found it can be a fun, supportive environment to learn how to use cool tech.


Some of our equipment is dangerous, so unfortunately all of our members must be aged 18 or over for insurance purposes. We are happy for members to bring children into the main room and the digital manufacturing room to help them learn skills, but please understand that they are your responsibility and must be supervised accordingly. The makerspace is an adult-oriented environment with risks, dangers and potentially bad influences.
