About us

Where it all began

In 2016 Made In Workshop opened its doors with only a small laser cutter, 3D printers and miscellaneous hand tools and machines. As members came and went, Made In Workshop moulded a space that was not only an essential asset to our customers/members it was also their community.
 
Made In Workshop is not just about the tools and machines.
 
Made In Workshop is not just about the workspace.
 
Made In Workshop is the spark of inspiration that is the culmination of tools, machines, workspace and the community that we are creating.

Meet the team

Henry Levine

CEO

An ego to own really big machines was probably the real reason Henry started Made In Workshop. I liked the ability to make things that other people would normally purchase. What was better that I could use this ego to help other people and SMEs to start and grow their own businesses. I enjoy being with members, teaching members how to use machines and I also learning from members.

Joshua Lotter

Chelsea Alexander

Operations Manager
Cafe' SPARK

While spending a couple years emerging myself in the disciplines of law and philosophy, I emerged myself in quite a bit of conversation. I quickly realised that good food and drinks were the best possible compliments for grand conversation. As the curator and manager of Cafe' Spark @ Made In Workshop that is what can be promised a damn fine conversation along with great food and drinks. Come give us a visit!
