Membership & Inductions


At Blackhorse Workshop we welcome people from all backgrounds and skill levels. Whether you’re a professional carpenter who needs some space to make something for a few days or have a more casual interest and are not quite sure what you want to make, we have something that will suit you perfectly.

The prices below allow you to use the bench space on the ground floor with access to a clean working area, but no storage. Come down for the day or half day if you’re working on a one-off project, or sign up for longer if you want to use the workshop on a more serious basis.
