Spanning 285sqm, the Electron Workshop is an open-plan coworking space, built for digital creatives. In addition to flexible and permanent desks, we also run regular events out of the space, providing an area for learning and collaboration across all disciplines.

Our coworking space is closing at the end of March 2021.

It’s been a blast, but it’s time to draw this adventure to a close. Nick and Marty built this place with our own blood, sweat and a few tears, way back in 2011, and it has run for 10 years and hosted many amazing entrepreneurs, events, meetups, movie screenings, and so many great memories. Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that maintaining the physical space is unviable, so it’s time to draw the curtains on an amazing run. Thanks to everyone who has been involved with the Workshop over the years, you were an essential part of an incredible journey. This site will remain as an archive of what we achieved.

Featuring a full kitchen, shower, toilets, air conditioning, natural gas heating, bike racks and 100% green energy.

The Electron Workshop is powered by high-speed Sky Internet from Spirit Telecom and enterprise grade Meraki WIFI / or Ethernet if required.
