The Assembly, Marrickville

Type of space: Design Studio, Fashion Studio, Hackerspace, Makerspace (Shared open space for making), Multi-use Space, Office Space, Visual Art Studio, Co-Working Space

    We're looking for new people to join our shared creative space, in the heart of Marrickville.

    The available space: 

    **On the woodworkshop floor - dust and noise! 


    **$175 per week / $750 monthly


    Wifi, electricity, weekly waste removal and cleaning, kitchen and green communal space for meetings/office work. 24/7 access. 

    There is one available space in a prime location on the ground floor workshop. You will be sharing the workshop floor with 3 other wood workers and 1 upholsterer. 

    Your space will have two brick walls for shelving, and a mezzanine level for additional storage with a 1m wide clearway running down the centre of the workshop. There are 5 workshops in total downstairs, and the space is mostly used by woodworkers, so be prepared for noise and dust. 

    The building is accessible via a front security door and a loading dock large enough for one car. You will have 24-hour access and your own set of keys. We prefer that the studio be used frequently to make things, gather in, work in, and not just to be used as storage space and definitely not to be lived in. 

    The upstairs space is home to a variety of designers and makers studios, and also contains the communal kitchen with large table, fridge, toaster oven, sandwich press, sink, and tea/coffee making facilities and a lounge area.

    • We all share the kitchen, bathrooms and a loading dock.

    • You will sublease your space for a minimum of 3months. There are terms you must agree to. 

    • Sharing your workshop space with a partner or a friend is fine by us - we just need to meet first.

    The Assembly, Marrickville has been operating since May 2014 and is volunteer run as a non-profit organisation with the aim of providing an affordable space for furniture makers, carpenters, designers, artists, makers and anyone who uses power tools or needs to make a bit of noise or dust.

    We are looking for people who want to be part of growing this workshop into a positive, productive place. If you’re interested in having a look, let us know a bit about yourself and how you would use the space.

    • Email Ramona at or text 0403 869 037 with an introduction to yourself and your work/how you would be using the space.

    Pricing Terms

    The monthly rent of $750 includes electricity, wifi, general waste removal and some cleaning.

    We ask for a one month bond payment to be made when you join, this is just to cover our own bums when we pay the landlord, and we can deduct this from your final month's rent when you move out. We are more than happy to arrange payment by installments - we know how hard it can be to pull all the money together in one hit.

    Lease Conditions

    We have a use it or lose it policy, meaning, you need to use the space frequently for making and creating - and not just for storage. Otherwise, we'll offer to another artist in need.

    Under no circumstances is the space to be used to replace or supplement other living arrangements.

    Parking Notes

    Loading dock for use by all tenants when bumping jobs in and out.

    Street parking otherwise.
