Want to get involved but not sure how yet?


Biomakespace is a volunteer community who are still in the process of setting up our lab - we are open for membership and have plenty of roles for those who want to get more involved as a volunteer!

The links below will take you to our planning documents for various aspects of the space - feel free to peruse, join us at a meeting, get in touch and drop by our chat app if you think you can help with any of these areas!

Volunteering Opportunities

See the Volunteering pages for more information

Safety Officers - if you have experience in biosafety, chemical safety or other health and safety, we'd love to hear from you. These roles entail reviewing project proposals for the space, monitoring and updating safety policies and procedures and helping make sure everyone using Biomakespace is safe and happy!

Trainers - If you know any molecular biology, engineering or other skills that you'd like to share, we are looking for trainers to run introductory and advanced courses in the space. Great experience with teaching a diverse group of people in an informal setting.

Communications and fundraising - If you have a penchant for social media, writing grants or organising events, get involved with the fundraising and communications team.

Lab Design - if you like lab technology and equipment, help us source and commission new kit, design the space for optimum use and generally join in building a unique lab in a unique venue. 

If you are interested in any of the above, drop along to one of our events or contact us on
