Welcome to Workspace – a playground for creativity
Design Hub | Makerspace | Shared Workshop
Workspace is a public benefit organisation located in the Harvest Centre, in Hout Bay Harbour. We are dedicated to providing a platform for knowledge and skills exchange across the social, cultural and generational divides. We aim to provide resources for all people from all backgrounds, ages and abilities to use “making as a tool for empowerment, economic opportunity and the building of social capital.
The focus of the facility is to provide a creative space for makers to engage, make and display their crafts. Within that mandate, the members of Workspace are committed to sharing their skills to help uplift disadvantaged people within the Hout Bay community. Workspace, in conjunction with the British Councils ConnectZA program and local NGOs, formally train people as makers through the TEN program.
The public is invited to use the facility but only by appointment only. Please contact us for membership details. We have a full range of DIY services on offer. Choose your project and we compile all the bits and pieces you will need to build it. If you need a hand we will do our best to connect you to the right person to assist, otherwise you’re free to work on your own.
