So Make It is a non-profit Makerspace in Southampton, UK. This wiki is intended to be a repository of knowledge about the space and its members - if you are a member of So Make It or one of its Subgroups then please jump in and contribute!

Check out our main website.

The Space

We are based at unit F, Liners Industrial Estate just off Pitt Road in Southampton a short walk from major bus routes, the central station and not too far from the city centre. As you would expect, there are plenty of facilities nearby.

See the History page for a brief overview of how we got where we are and our past activities.

We are filling the space with more Tools all the time, if you need something, please do suggest it. If you have something you can loan or donate to the space, that would be excellent!

Opening Hours

Tuesday 19:30–22:00
Thursday 19:30–22:00
Friday 09:30–12:30

These are our regular opening times. More details can be found here.

Some subgroups organise regular meetings at the space in addition to the regular opening times. See the calendar above for details.

We can open at other times on request if a keyholder is available, and we'll let everyone know if we do this. Our Slack channels and our Google group are good places to keep up to date with or request ad hoc opening times.

HIDDEN AS VERY OUT OF DATE, XANADU:, including a list of Keymasters for the next month or so. Limited parking is available.

How to talk to us

The best way to talk to us is via the Mailing list, it's good for talking about projects, asking for help. Or organising an ad-hoc opening of the space. Important announcements go out to this list, so we recommend you subscribe.

A significant portion of us hang out on Slack a lot, it's good for much the same sort of banter. You might also want to check out smib the chat bot.
