Book a bench

Book a bench

We are a Covid-secure venue and open for bookings for existing professional members only. Social Distancing, the wearing of PPE and extra cleaning is in place. There are a limited number of benches available per day. We can only accept full day bookings currently, all users must have completed the relevant inductions. 

During this current period, we request that you only book a bench if you are a professional maker. 

We have a new booking system in place which you will need a login for. Please email us at to request the link needed to create your log in. You will only be given this if you are an existing and professional member. We will be open for new members when restrictions ease.

We have 9 benches available in the woodwork area and 3 in the metalwork area.  If you require specific equipment, particularly in metalwork let us know. Benches do get booked up quickly however, so try to book as far ahead as you can (available up to 2 weeks in advance) – but we recommend at least a couple of days to guarantee a bench. Please supply a contact telephone number when booking.

On your booked day you have 1 hour to claim your bench otherwise you will risk losing your booking. Please notify us if you are running late.

Cancellation Policy:
If you can’t make it for any reason, please note that you need to let us know before 5.30pm the day before, otherwise you will be charged the full rate. For Monday bookings please let us know by the Saturday before as we are closed on Sundays.
