Benchspace is an exciting space in Cork City established to provide equipment and work space to individual makers, designers and small businesses. Just as important as the equipment is the community we are building around the space.
Annual membership of Benchspace Cork is now open. The cost is just €50 for 12 months from signup (plus a small bookiing fee).
Make It Yourself
If you have a project you want to work on, then as a member you can book time in the workshop to make it yourself. We’ll have an experienced maker on hand to supervise and give advice.
Benchspace exists to allow makers turn their passions into their professions. If you want to start your own fine woodworking business then we’d like to help to providing space and equipment at an affordable price. Instead of many individual bills, we charge one fee to cover all of your machine, space, power, waste and workshop insurance costs. We work hard to keep this fee as small as possible.
A great way to learn or improve is through our classes which range from beginner to advanced machining. Most of our longer classes are in the evenings
We supply all of the tools and materials and keep the classes small so everyone gets the help they need, and all of our friendly instructors are qualified and experienced furniture or cabinet makers.
Look out for our New Year schedule coming soon.
Note: Becoming a member means you get advance notice of classes coming up and a 10% discount when booking.
