Created in collaboration with the Walthamstow Pumphouse, the Toolhouse is a welcoming and inclusive space that encourages individuals to come together and collaborate on projects.

By providing individuals with the tools and resources needed to bring their creative projects to life, the Toolhouse promotes a culture of collaboration and skill-building that is essential for community growth and development.
Our Contributions
The creation of the Toolhouse was made possible by the dedication and generosity of volunteers who gave their time and resources to transform a disused space into a vibrant community workshop.

Groups such as Good Gym provided valuable support in clearing out the space, while others contributed by building storage units, desks, and other essential features.In addition to the physical labor involved in creating the Toolhouse, volunteers also worked tirelessly to paint, sand, and remodel the space to create a welcoming and productive environment.

With the help of local CIC Carpentry studio Thinkfound, who donated materials and resources, the Toolhouse was equipped with the necessary tools and equipment needed to support a range of creative projects. This Project also provided valuable work experience opportunities for students from Waltham Forest College, who contributed their skills and knowledge to the creation of the community workshop.

The success of the Toolhouse is a testament to the power of community-driven initiatives and the impact that can be made through collaborative efforts. By coming together to transform a neglected space into a thriving community workshop, volunteers and supporters have created a valuable resource that will benefit individuals and the community for years to come.
