Our new wood and metal workshop

Looking for a workshop? Leigh Works is a maker’s dream – you’ll find state-of-the-art equipment in our wood and metal workshop that allows you to start working straight away.


Our well-equipped workshop for hire in Leigh is available to all of our members, and houses a wide selection of tools that has recently been expanded.

We have a wide range of bench and hand tools

The wood and metal workshop now houses a drill press, table saw, mitre saw, bench sander, router, grinder, a wide selection of hand and power tools.

There are lots of materials and hardware stocked on-site, ready for you to access. The workshop stocks sheet materials such as plywood and MDF, hardwoods like oak and walnut and plenty of acrylic and laserable materials to use on our laser cutter. We also house a massive selection of fixings – all the nuts and washers you could wish for – plus extruded aluminium frames and fittings.

We also have laser-cutting and 3D-printing equipment, so you can use the latest in maker technology right here in Leigh as you develop your projects.

In addition to the physical resources available, we can also offer support in terms of our human resources. There are a set of knowledgeable makers and other business people on-site, who are keen to help guide you through your business journey. And if we can’t help you with something, we’ll know someone locally who can.

Where funding is an issue, we can help you with that too – our experience in helping to organize business startup funding means we can help you get your business off the ground.

Membership to our co-working space in Leigh starts at £39 per month, and includes access to our other facilities such as the chill-out area and electronics workshop. Private workshop areas are also available for rent.
