The Old Sub Station Makers is a growing community of craftspeople of various skills working alongside each other in a modernized open-plan workspace in North West London directly opposite to Harlesden station.
Designed to accommodate a mix of professional creative work in an environment that encourages imagination and productivity. We offer dedicated individual spaces in a coworking environment alongside other artists, designers and makers. There is a focused energy that the artists both create and benefit from.
We also provide a shared kitchen area and are in the process of setting up a dedicated space with a pull-down colorama where you can photograph your products.
The site also provides a space for loading and offloading for a car/van but there is no parking.

“The energy is contagious. People are serious about what they do and always working hard which makes the workspace a good place to concentrate and be productive. The friendly environment is unique, you can spark ideas from each other and get advice from your neighbours in other creative professions offering a different perspective which is nice and helpful.”
“Being an artist can sometimes be a little lonely, at The Old Sub Station there’s always someone around if you want a chat or to even make you a cup of tea when your too busy to stop.”
