For the benefit of everyone, we have a membership joining process that applies to all new and returning members. It starts with competion of the membership form, which can be found here.
Coventry Makerspace is a community organisation. In return for access at rates below those of comparable commercial facilities, all members agree to give some of their time to helping to run the organisation and community events that we take part in throughout the year. This is not optional (other than for associate members), but neither is it onerous – it is usually just a few hours per month, is sociable, and is usually a lot of fun!
